(Reuters) – Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi on Saturday called the Minsk Agreement the “only way out” for resolving the Ukraine situation, and said Ukraine should not be a frontline for competition among major powers.

Speaking to a security conference via videolink, Wang said all parties should sit down to have in-depth discussion, and come up with a road map and timetable for implementation of the Minsk Agreement.

The sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of any country should be respected and safeguarded, Wang said.
