Arctic and NATO——Also on the Arctic Countries' Attitudes on NATO's Involvement in the Arctic

LI Yao;Peking University;  
The Arctic has great potentialities in natural resources and shipping uses,with which new security threats are emerging. As an important military and political organization with five Arctic countries,NATO wants to play an important role in the Arctic on the one hand,but fails to introduce a unified Arctic strategy or policy on the other hand. The article analyses the eight Arctic countries' attitudes towards NATO's involvement in the Arctic,finds that there are two reasons behind this phenomenon: the internal disagreement and external pressure. Nevertheless,NATO still has subjective intentions and objective demands to play a role in the Arctic. Against this backdrop,NATO will try to play a low- key but substantive role in the Arctic,other than make high- key involvement in the region in short term. From this case,the author suggests that China should take a "Calm Observation and Making Difference"attitude towards Arctic's security issues.
