Political expert and author Gordon Chang warned of a World War 3 nuclear conflict involving China. During an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Chang insisted that China is feeling more confident as a nation. He highlighted that China’s diplomat has insisted that the US can not speak to China from a position of authority.
He added that deterrents are less impactful now and this could pose a global risk.
“A nuclear military conflict could happen.
“The reason is that deterrents are breaking down.”
“We know deterrents are breaking down because China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi in the middle of March actually came out and said the US could no longer talk to China from a position of strength.

“China’s perception is that it can do what it wants.
“Therefore it can do things that could lead to World War 3 for instance.
“I’m not saying it will happen but I am saying the odds of it happening are unacceptably high.”
Mr Chang also insisted the China’s aggression would cause countries to rally together.
He added: “Australia is one of the four members of the Quad.
“That is the nations comprised of the United States, Australia, Japan and India.
“These four nations are acting in closer coordination.
“They are operationalising their understandings and part of that is military.”
