Kissinger on China

“In principle, the [Sino-Russian] alliance is against vested interests, it’s now established. But it does not look to me as if it is an intrinsically permanent relationship”


Veteran diplomat Henry Kissinger discusses the Ukraine war, and its impact on China and Russia, at the WeekendFT Festival in Washington. Kissinger, who turns 99 later this month, added that the war had led China’s leaders to reflect “on how to avoid getting into the situation in which Putin got himself into”, though he did not specifically say whether he was referring to Taiwan.
