BRUSSELS -- NATO members are debating how best to express concern over possible Chinese cooperation with Russia in a joint statement after an extraordinary summit Thursday, amid fears that military and financial support from Beijing could reinvigorate Moscow's offensive in Ukraine.

A European diplomat with direct knowledge of the draft process said that "the joint communique will mention concerns about China's potential military support to Russia." Talks are ongoing about whether it will include language regarding consequences for any such actions, the diplomat said.
