``We are at a historical moment that requires responsibility and vision of all world leaders,'' Albares told Wang during a telephone conversation on Monday, according to a statement from the ministry.

It said that Albares condemned ``the Russian aggression on Ukraine'' by telling Wang that ``Russia has undermined the foundations of peace and stability in Europe and threatens the international community.''
