As part of his speech to the graduates of the West Point Military Academy, he noted that the United States is now faced with two world powers - Russia and China.

“Each of these countries has a significant military potential and is determined to change the current rules-based order,” TASS quoted him as saying.

According to the American military commander, the world is becoming more and more unstable.

“The world... has the potential for serious international conflict between the great powers.

This potential is growing, not decreasing,” Milli said.

Earlier, former NATO Secretary General Javier Solano and former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt, in an article for The Washington Post, warned of the risks of a "new catastrophic war" due to the position of the US authorities on the resumption of the nuclear deal with Iran.
