Kissinger planning his new role

VETERAN US diplomat and former secretary of state Henry Kissinger is reportedly aiming to be an intermediary between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President-elect Donald Trump. A report in the German tabloid Bild - Kissinger to prevent new Cold War - claimed the 93-year-old (pictured) was working towards a new relationship with Russia. This would involve the US accepting Crimea, a territory Russia seized from Ukraine in 2014, now belongs to Moscow. "I think Kissinger is preparing a diplomatic offensive,” Marcel Van Herpen, a Russia specialist for Dutch think tank the Cicero Foundation told Politico.com. "He's a realist. The most important thing for him is international equilibrium, and there's no talk of human rights or democracy.” - INM
