Beijing hails Kissinger's 'historic contributions' to China-US ties

Beijing's foreign ministry's spokesperson Wang Wenbin hails the late US diplomat Henry Kissinger for his "historic contributions" to China-US ties, describing him as an "old and good friend of the Chinese people". Kissinger died on November 29 at the age of 100. He remains a divisive figure, including for his ruthless philosophy of realpolitik -- the cold calculation that nations pursue their own interests through power.
