Senator Pushkov said that the possibility of a war between the US and China cannot be ruled out
The possibility of war between the US and China cannot be completely ruled out. So this possibility, against the backdrop of the visit of the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the US Congress Nancy Pelosi to Taiwan, was commented on by the head of the Federation Council Commission on Information Policy and Interaction with the Media Alexei Pushkov in his Telegram-channel.
“Are the US and China now ready for a real war, and not just a war of words? How much does each of the two countries need such a war? And is the visit of the elderly speaker of the congress sufficient reason for this? To all three questions, I give a negative answer, ”the senator wrote.
At the same time, he added that the likelihood of the outbreak of a military conflict cannot be completely ruled out, since, in his opinion, in recent years, “the irrational principle has prevailed” during the adoption of important political decisions.
Against the backdrop of a possible trip by Pelosi to Taiwan, the Chinese Navy started two-day exercise in the South China Sea. The maneuvers will take place on July 29 and 30 in the western part of the Qiongzhou Strait. July 30 People’s Liberation Army of China (PLA) start combat exercises off the coast of the eastern province of Fujian, located across the strait from the island of Taiwan.
