North Korea slams Japan-NATO ‘military nexus’ amid talk of new liaison office

State media says US seeks to expand NATO as part of ‘anti-China’ push, echoing Chinese and Russian talking points

Japan is trying to obliterate peace and stability by forming a military “nexus” with NATO, North Korea’s foreign ministry stated Monday, the latest in a string of rhetorical attacks against the alliance’s efforts to strengthen cooperation in the Indo-Pacific.

The criticism comes after Japanese foreign minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said in an interview last week that Tokyo is in talks with NATO to establish the group’s first liaison office in the country.
