A new world war will not happen as long as there is global nuclear parity, said Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian President. He believes that the balance between nuclear powers does not allow a new military conflict to flare up, which will affect most of the countries around the world.


Fortunately, war is impossible as long as there is nuclear parity. It saves the world from war, although terrible wars are taking place next to us. The biggest countries are still responsible for stopping these hostilities, Peskov said, recalling that Russian leader Vladimir Putin contributed to ending the conflict in Nagorno-Karabakh.

He stressed that in today's realities, people had lost their usual comfort zone. According to him, the rules of international relations have changed, and now there is a question of what will replace these norms, RIA Novosti reports.

NEWS.ru reported earlier that Washington's policy had broken all the rules and 'red lines' in international relations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
