KISSINGER: We are on the verge of war with Russia and China - The expansion of NATO should have been stopped

0

Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said that Washington has rejected traditional diplomacy and that in the absence of a great leader, the world has brought the world to the brink of war with Russia and China over Ukraine and Taiwan.

We are on the brink of war with Russia and China over issues of which we are partial creators, and we haven't thought about how the crisis will end or where it will take us - Kissinger told the Wall Street Journal.

Kissinger believes that the expansion of NATO should have stopped in Poland (1999), and Ukraine should have taken the place in the relations between Russia and the West that Finland had.

He believes that "it was a mistake for NATO to signal to Ukraine that it could eventually join the alliance" and that Putin's concerns for Russia's security should have been taken seriously.

I thought that Poland, like all traditional Western countries that were part of Western history, were logical NATO members. I was in favor of the complete independence of Ukraine - said the former US Secretary of State.

In his opinion, Ukraine is "a set of territories that were once annexed to Russia, and which the Russians see as their own. Stability would be better if Ukraine was a buffer between Russia and the West. However, as a result of the Russian special military operation, Kissinger believes that the situation has changed.

Now I think that, in one way or another, formally or not, Ukraine should be treated as a member of NATO after this - he added.

Kissinger claims that the US should find a "balance" between itself, Russia and China. This expression refers to a kind of balance of power, while accepting the legitimacy of sometimes conflicting values.

Henry Kissinger, now 99, elaborated on the West's role in the conflict in Ukraine in a recent book profiling prominent leaders after World War II.

He described Russia's decision to send troops to the country as motivated by the need for its own security, since Ukraine's NATO membership would move the alliance's weapons within 500 kilometers of Moscow.
