Russia in the years 2025-2035 is unlikely to represent for US the same threat as China, the Chairman of the joint chiefs of staff of the Armed forces of the United States General Joseph Dunford. In his opinion, Russia is unlikely to maintain the potential at the same level as now.
“There’s a declining demographic and economic indicators,” he said in a speech at Duke University, which was broadcast on the website of the Pentagon.
China has more opportunities for capacity building, said Dunford. “I think the next 20-30 years, it is necessary to consider China as a threat,” concluded the American General.
