Mikhail Gorbachev has warned that the current state of relations between Russia and the US means World War 3 is almost inevitable.
Gorbachev has urged both sides to resume dialogue about nuclear disarmament before it’s too late.
“I think the world has approached a dangerous threshold. I would prefer not to suggest any particular schemes, but I want to say: we need to stop. Dialogue should be resumed. Stopping the dialogue has been the biggest mistake. Now we must return to the main priorities, such as nuclear disarmament, fighting terrorism and prevention of global environmental disasters. Compared to these challenges everything else is a second priority,” Gorbachev told RIA Novosti.
