NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday urged India to collaborate with the bloc to counter China's military expansion, especially in the Indo-Pacific region, which has become increasingly important for the United States.

"We must be clear headed about the challenges that comes with China's rise. China is matching its military power to its economic power. It has tripled its military expenditure over the last decade," Stoltenberg said in a video-conference during the Raisina Dialog, an annual political and economic forum organized by the Indian government in New Delhi.
