“Negotiations must take place.

In addition, I would caution against dragging out this war indefinitely.

Because, in this case, everything will be like the First World War, and there will probably be an escalation, ”Kissinger said in an interview with CNN.

He expressed hope that the NATO countries would be able to agree among themselves what the results of the negotiations should be.

The ex-secretary of state also spoke out against NATO making concessions to Russia.

Earlier, Kissinger, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, expressed confidence that the United States was "on the brink of war" with Russia and China.
