China called for lowering tensions over Ukraine, according to a statement following a call between Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday that included comments for Washington to stop disrupting the Beijing Winter Olympics, and cautioned on Taiwan.

"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.

A statement from the U.S. said Blinken underscored the global security and economic risks posed by further Russian aggression against Ukraine and conveyed that de-escalation and diplomacy are the responsible way forward, adding views were exchanged "on how to advance work together following President Biden’s virtual meeting with President Xi on November 15, 2021."

Wang said the solution to Ukraine issue must go back to the new Minsk agreement, and China will support all efforts that conform to the spirit of this agreement. Wang urged all sides to stay calm and cast aside any Cold War mentality, adding that regional security cannot be guaranteed based on expanding a military bloc.
