Global News published this video item, entitled “NATO leaders pose for family photo at summit” – below is their description.
NATO leaders posed for a family photo during a summit on Monday in Brussels, a day after the Group of Seven nations issued a statement on human rights in China and Taiwan that Beijing said slandered its reputation.
In a more pared-back gathering than past NATO summits, in part due to COVID-19 restrictions– without fighter jet fly-pasts–the 30 allies gathered in their glass and steel headquarters to agree on reforms for a multipolar, post-Cold War world where China’s military rise presents a new challenge.
The summit is a “unique opportunity” to renew transatlantic ties, according to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.
Leaders are set to commit to reducing NATO militaries’ climate impact, and to lowering the bar for any retaliation to cyber attacks. Space, Afghanistan and political reforms to make NATO more responsive in a multipolar world are on the agenda.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
