The Chairman of US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Milley, stated that the United States would do everything to prevent the strategic military alliance between Russia and China.
Milley said in a press interview on Tuesday, “It is not in the interest of the United States to see the formation of a strategic military alliance between Russia and China, and we will do everything we can to make sure that does not happen”.
Milley acknowledged that Washington sees evidence of a rapprochement between Moscow and Beijing and intends to prevent a geostrategic, political and military alliance against the United States.
Milley also noted unlike during the Cold War, when there was a confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union, there are now three ‘superpowers’ in the world, which he considers to be the United States, Russia and China.
All of them (Russia, China and the US) have great inherent power potential in their populations, economies and, of course, militarily, and they all have large nuclear arsenals.
According to general Milley, such a “tri-polar world” is much more difficult and complicated to manage.
