“NATO is critically important for U.S. interests in and of itself,” Biden said from NATO’s headquarters in Brussels while speaking with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. “Russia is not acting in a way that is consistent as we hoped, as well as China,” Biden said during his brief meeting with Stoltenberg.

Of all the differences between the U.S. and its allies in Europe, how to deal with China is the most intractable. Fresh from the G-7 love-in in Britain, President Biden is in Brussels this week to meet NATO and European Union leaders. There will no doubt be more warm words of trans-Atlantic harmony on subjects such as Covid-19, climate change and the importance of democracy. The weekend’s G-7 communiqué was mainly hawkish on China, but the accompanying commentary highlighted the balancing act the EU has to pull off. European leaders such as France’s Emmanuel Macron and Italy’s Mario Draghi stressed the need to cooperate with Beijing.

BRUSSELS—President Biden meets with leaders of NATO allies in Brussels Monday, seeking to encourage a more concerted response to Chinese security threats and to bolster an alliance jolted by broadsides from his predecessor. U.S. officials said Mr. Biden will emphasize his commitment to the principle of collective defense enshrined in Article 5 of the treaty that established the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1949, following some uncertainty about Washington’s view of the matter under former President Donald Trump. During the meeting, NATO’s 30 member countries will take initial steps to revise the group’s Strategic Concept, which sets out the group’s goals. The Strategic Concept will be adopted next year, and is expected to touch on Russia, China, cybersecurity and climate change, according to U.S. officials. The summit comes two days before Mr. Biden is scheduled to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva and Mr. Biden will brief allied leaders on that.

The case was referred to the European court after the GDPR took effect. “The one-stop-shop mechanism doesn’t work as smoothly as it should work,” said Hielke Hijmans, who oversees fines and sanctions for the Belgian data protection authority. European privacy authorities generally issue sanctions through regulatory procedures, not courts. But tensions have been brewing over some European privacy regulators’ speed in investigating GDPR complaints. Mr. Caspar said he has since applied for an extension of the ban with the European Data Protection Board, the umbrella group of EU regulators.

NATO welcomes Biden in ‘pivotal’ post-Trump summit

NATO leaders hope to open a new chapter in transatlantic relations at a summit with U.S. President Joe Biden on Monday, agreeing to focus on tackling climate change for the first time as well as facing up China’s military rise. Described as a "pivotal moment" by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, the summit aims to turn the page on four tense years with Biden's predecessor Donald Trump, who shook confidence in the Western alliance by calling it "obsolete". 1/4 Banners displaying the NATO logo are placed at the entrance of new NATO headquarters during the move to the new building, in Brussels, Belgium April 19, 2018. But foremost in leaders' minds, diplomats say, is a need to hear Biden recommit the United States to NATO's collective defence after the Trump era. Trump's confrontational rhetoric towards allies from 2017 to 2019 at NATO summits created an impression of crisis, envoys said.

U.S. President Joe Biden walks with National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan as he arrives for the final session of the G7 summit in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, Britain, June 13, 2021. Doug Mills/Pool via REUTERSWhite House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday G7 leaders rallied around the need to “counter and compete” with China on challenges ranging from safeguarding democracy to the technology race. "Words like counter and compete were words coming out of the mouths of every leader in the room, not just Joe Biden," he said. G7 leaders also sought to counter China's growing influence by offering developing countries an infrastructure plan that could rival Beijing's Belt and Road Initiative by supporting projects such as railways in Africa and wind farms in Asia. It says many major powers are still gripped by an outdated imperial mindset after years of humiliating China.

"They will talk about political and economic issues that are more challenging ... that have been challenges in our relationship, including human rights-related issues," Sullivan told reporters on arriving in Brussels late on Sunday. Erdogan said on leaving Turkey the same evening that he expected an "unconditional approach" from Biden to move on from past troubles. "Turkey is not just any country, it is an allied country. The most important one of these is the F-35 issue," Erdogan said of Washington's decision to remove Turkey from a fighter jet programme. "While both sides are expected to pursue some pragmatic engagement and neither is interested in a showdown, the meeting will not provide Erdogan with any meaningful dividend," consultancy Teneo said in a note ahead of the talks.

Live NATO Live Updates: Biden’s First Summit Will Focus on Russia and China President Biden is taking part in his first NATO summit as president. Biden’s first NATO summit as president will be a sharp contrast to Trump’s. Activists of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons and other peace initiatives staged a protest in Berlin in January. The accord outlaws the use, testing, development, production, possession and transfer of nuclear weapons and stationing them in a different country. “A world where Russia, China, North Korea and others have nuclear weapons, but NATO does not, is not a safer world,” she said.

Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster looks on outside the Strand Cinema, as coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions begin to ease in Belfast, Northern Ireland, May 24, 2021. Foster, who took power in 2016, was ousted in April after a majority of DUP lawmakers signed a letter seeking a confidence vote after many blamed her for mishandling Brexit negotiations. Foster resisted compromise on the terms of Britain's exit from the European Union when her party wielded huge power in propping up the government of former British Prime Minister Theresa May. The resulting Northern Ireland Protocol leaves Northern Ireland within the EU's trading sphere, avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland but infuriating pro-British unionists by undermining the region's place in the United Kingdom.

NATO diplomats say efforts to focus on climate change were stymied during Donald Trump's U.S. presidency. He called climate change a "hoax" and pulled the United States out of the international Paris Agreement to fight climate change.
