China's Foreign Ministry has responded to reports about NATO's plans to open an office in Japan with a call for "high vigilance."

Mao Ning, a spokesperson for the ministry, stated that Asia should not become a battleground for geopolitics and warned of NATO's attempts to interfere in regional affairs and destroy peace and stability.

The Western military alliance is planning to open its first Asian liaison office in Japan to facilitate consultations in the region, with a particular focus on geopolitical challenges posed by China and Russia.

Mao Ning's statement highlights China's concerns over NATO's expansion in the Asia-Pacific region, calling for vigilance from countries in the region.

The move to open an office in Japan is seen as a way for NATO to increase its influence in the region, with discussions planned with security partners such as South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand.

NATO's close partnership with Japan continues to grow, with practical cooperation in areas such as cyber defence, maritime security, and non-proliferation.

Japan and NATO are also seeking to deepen their cooperation on cyber threats, disruptive technologies, and disinformation. An individually tailored partnership program is expected to be signed before the NATO summit in July.
