(China Daily)--"NATO's ongoing transformation has also offered the possibility for cooperation with China, which has expressed its willingness to have some cooperation with NATO on the basis of "mutual trust, mutual benefit, equality and coordination".
In fact, both sides have conducted dialogue and contacts in political and diplomatic fields, as indicated by bilateral anti-piracy cooperation in the Gulf of Aden. There is also room for non-proliferation and anti-terrorism cooperation.
However, the huge differences between China and NATO in ideology and values, as well as China's non-alignment policy mean no essential progress will be achieved in bilateral cooperation. China needs to remain highly vigilant of NATO's development of an anti-missile defense system in Asia and its militarization of space."
