"Everybody can know today that there has to an established international order, the minimum condition of which will be that no country that participates in it will be so dissatisfied that they prefer to use force rather than peaceful settlement," said Kissinger.
As to how to create a world order for the future, he said, "it's essential that China and the United States come to an understanding that both sides agree to and both sides want to follow of what this world order will be like".
Kissinger went on to explain the challenges of achieving such understanding due to the differences of history and culture between the two countries.

"The biggest challenge is for Americans to understand how the Chinese think, as well as for Chinese to understand that Americans too are learning and that they sometimes apply traditional thinking to new circumstances where they don't fit," he said before calling for the two countries to shoulder the common task of addressing issues such as climate, cyber and the threat of nuclear weapons.
Fu Ying, chairwoman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the 12th National People's Congress, said in the forum on Saturday, "China is part of the current world order that has attained important achievements, but some aspects of this world order excludes China or even subtly regard China as a potential imaginary enemy.
We need to be able to explain clearly to the world what we hope the future's world order will be like, how it is related to the current world order, and what kind of role we will play and things we can do in building the future's world order."
