China threat: Ex-US diplomat warns Sino-American rivalry could lead to all-out 'world war'


Mr Kissinger then cited both the US and China’s advanced supply of nuclear weapons, which he said multiplied the doomsday threat posed by Russia and Washington in the 1970’s.

He added: “For the first time in human history, humanity has the capacity to extinguish itself in a finite period of time.

“We have developed the technology of a power that is beyond what anybody imagined even 70 years ago.

“And now, to the nuclear issue is added the hi-tech issue, which in the field of artificial intelligence, in its essence is based on the fact that man becomes a partner of machines and that machines can develop their own judgment.

“So in a military conflict between hi-tech powers, it’s of colossal significance.”
