China was expected to weigh in on the war in Ukraine, Taiwan tensions and other issues, as the country’s foreign minister meets the foreign press on the sidelines of parliament sessions in Beijing. 

Foreign Minister Wang Yi was slated to field questions on a range of topics at his annual news briefing at 3 p.m. Monday, a tightly orchestrated event that China has used to articulate new positions on geopolitical matters.
