Henry Kissinger warns of a new Cold War: “China and the US are capable of destroying humanity”
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says China is “my much bigger concern” in world politics right now. The superpowers of China and the USA would have to be careful not to “sleepwalk” into a conflict.
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has in one stern– Talk warned against making Russia an ally of China – and thus further escalating the conflict between the US and China.
Kissinger said: “One cannot see European history since the 17th century without Russia, Russia played a role in every major turn. Excluding Russia is not my vision of Europe. That would make Russia an ally of China. Should Russia decide to move the direction we must resist and prevent it… When this war ends – and one day it will – when the Atlantic allies have achieved their goals and Russia has not, then NATO should be strong enough to establish a new relationship between To find Russia and Europe, like Europe after the Napoleonic Wars. Such a solution would be consistent with European history.”

Henry Kissinger warns of a new Cold War with China – “…have to be careful not to destroy our civilization”
According to Kissinger, China and the USA are capable of destroying humanity
Kissinger continued: “China is my much greater concern. China and the United States are superpowers capable of destroying humanity, and they continue to increase that capacity every year. The military use of artificial intelligence allows for whole new ones Forms of warfare, that makes matters worse, because nobody has any experience with them, so both have an obligation to prevent such a war and contain their rivalry – on a level that still dominates humanity.
Yes, we already have Cold War rhetoric. But you will have noticed that President Biden’s national security adviser met with Chinese leaders for four hours in Luxembourg last week and that the exchange was described as constructive. We have two tasks. First, to be strategically strong and not fall under the dominance of another state. And second, to shape relations in such a way that we don’t get into a crisis like the Europeans before the First World War, when they sleepwalked into war and didn’t know how to get out of it. If that happened today, we would have to be careful not to destroy our civilization.”
