There'll be continuing friction between Russia and its western neighbors but Russian President Vladimir Putin will ultimately push toward cooperative relationships in what could be a looming "new world order," according to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

In a keynote address at the Margaret Thatcher Conference on Security in London Tuesday, Kissinger predicted Russia will be in clashes over Ukraine and Syria, the Associated Press reported.

"Russia has evolved to what amounts to a definition of absolute security (and) absolute insecurity for some of its neighbors," he said, the AP reported. "Russia wants to be accepted by Europe and transcend it simultaneously."

He also chillingly warned that with political chaos enveloping Britain and the United States, Russia, India and China could gain a foothold in creating a new world order.

"If the West withdraws providing stability, China and India will step in, as will Russia," he said, the Guardian reported. "World politics will be revolutionized. If the West engages in conflict without strategic concept, chaos will ensue.”

The architect of a changed U.S. relationship with China under President Richard Nixon said Beijing now has a degree of equality in terms of strategic significance with the United States, and believes its "Belt and Road" initiative – a massive global infrastructure plan – could shift the geopolitical center of gravity to central Asia.

And the nation state and old world order all is collapsing in the Middle East, where it once was possible to form alliances, he added.

"The maxim no longer applies in the Middle East that your enemy's enemy is your friend. Now, they're probably your enemy too," the 1973 Pulitzer Peace Prize winner said, the Guardian reported.
