Henry Kissinger: US and China tensions reaching escalations that led to World War I

The man who helped the United States establish friendly relations with China in the 1970s now says he is alarmed by escalating tensions between the two countries.

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, 97, is calling for the U.S. and China to establish rules of engagement for their rising competition on the global stage or risk leading into a blowup similar to World War I.

"Our leaders and [China's] leaders have to discuss the limits beyond which they will not push threats,” Kissinger said on Wednesday during a virtual discussion hosted by the Economic Club of New York. "They have to find a way of conducting such a policy over an extended period of time ... You can say this is totally impossible, and if it’s totally impossible, we will slide into a situation similar to World War I."
