Will there be World War III? You know, we can recall Einstein. He said: I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. Understating of the fact that World War III could be an end of the modern civilization should deter the world from any radical and highly dangerous actions that could [threaten] the modern civilization. As you member, after WW2 we have been living in a period of relative peace. Regional wars are here and there, we remember Vietnam or Korean war, or what’s happening in the Middle East now, Iraq, Lybia and other conflicts, but there were no global conflicts, Why? Because, in the world, among global powers, there was strategic parity And even though it doesn’t sound nice what I am going to say, it was the fear of mutual destruction that has always prevented the international actors and leading military powers from any radical moves and forced them to respect each other. Now once the US withdrew from the IBM treaty, that was an attempt to disrupt the strategic parity. However, we’ve been responding to it, I mentioned about that in my State of the nation address, with the modern weapons systems that are already in use will unconditionally guard this parity. We need to think about it and we need to find a contemporary solution that will realisticilly reflects forms of our collaboration. It is high time that we sit at the negotiation table, and not only think, but design the contemporary architecture of the international and European security.
