BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign minister told his Indonesian counterpart that China had urged Vietnam to "calm down" and respect China's sovereignty amid protests in Vietnam over Chinese oil drilling in a disputed part of the South China Sea.

Foreign Minister Wang Yi made the comments to Indonesia's Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa in a telephone call, the ministry said in a statement posted to its website on Wednesday.
