BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- China called for calmness and restraint in the Ukraine crisis and preventing further escalation of the situation, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday.

China urged all parties involved in the crisis to keep in mind of the fundamental interests of all ethnic communities in Ukraine and interests of regional peace and stability, Wang told a press conference on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.

"The priority now is to exercise calmness and restraint and prevent further escalation of the situation," he said.

"It is regrettable that the situation in Ukraine has come to what it is today, yet it is not by accident that the situation has reached this point," said Wang, adding that there is a complex history behind it as well as conflicting interests.

"China follows a just and objective position on the issue of Ukraine. We have stated our position on multiple occasions," he said.
