China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke about Ukraine on a telephone call late on Wednesday.
“We call on all parties to stay calm and refrain from doing things that agitate tensions and hype up the crisis,” Wang told Blinken, China’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
Wang, apparently referring to Russia’s objections to NATO’s expansion in eastern Europe, told Blinken that one country’s security could not be at the expense of the security of others and regional security could not be guaranteed by strengthening or even expanding military blocs, his ministry said.

“To resolve the Ukrainian issue, we still need to return to the new Minsk Agreement – the starting point,” said Wang.
“The new Minsk agreement, which was approved by the Security Council, is a fundamental political document recognised by all parties and should be effectively implemented. As long as efforts are made in line with the direction and spirit of the agreement, China will support them.”

BEIJING, January 27. /TASS/. The Chinese government is urging the US authorities to react seriously to Russia’s concerns in the field of security and to take them into account, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi, a member of the State Council, said in a telephone conversation with the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
“Russia’s reasonable concerns in the field of security must be taken seriously and settled,” the Foreign Ministry’s news release quotes Wang as saying.
“The security of one state cannot be ensured by harming the security of another country. Likewise, regional security cannot be ensured by strengthening or expanding military alliances,” he added.
Wang called for abandoning the Cold War mentality and for entering into negotiations with the aim of creating a balanced, effective, and viable mechanism of security in Europe.
These days it’s very hard to get a full story.

I’m sure Wang Yi can handle this.

They can’t talk realpolitik out in the open.
