“I am uneasy about beginning a process of military engagement without knowing where it will lead us and what we are willing to do, and what is at stake,” Kissinger said Thursday when questioned about possible US provision of weapons to the government in Kiev. “I am uneasy when one speaks of military measures alone, without having a strategy fully put forth”.
“This is a territory 300 miles from Moscow, and therefore has special security implication,” the former official noted. Kissinger argued further that Ukraine’s sovereignty must be maintained “within its existing borders.”
Secretary Kissinger has worked under three United States presidents during his lifetime where he developed a program of detente and improved relations with the Soviet Union. He is currently the chairman of Kissinger and Associates international consulting firm and has written extensively on US foreign relations.
