He understood Russian President Putin’s off-repeated position, stating that NATO must have disintegrated and ‘’been consigned to history alongside the Warsaw pact.’’
“However, rather than breaking up, NATO has kept strengthening and expanding and intervened militarily in countries like Yugoslavia, Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan,” he said. “One could well anticipate the consequences going down this path. The crisis in Ukraine is a stern warning.”
He added that Chinese President XI Jinping said the parties in Ukraine have to demonstrate “political will and keep the dialogue and negotiation going. The U.S. and NATO should also have a dialogue with Russia to address the crux of the Ukraine crisis and ease the security concerns of both Russia and Ukraine.”
