China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang says the country will support negotiations to find a diplomatic solution to Iran’s nuclear issue.
“China hopes that Iran will cooperate with the IAEA and we hope to see the early settlement of the Iranian nuclear issue through dialogue and negotiation,” AFP quoted the spokesman as saying on Tuesday.
“We will continue to push forward the settlement of the Iranian nuclear issue through negotiation, as always,” he added.
He noted that a recent IAEA resolution against Iran does not aim at more sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
“Sanctions are not the goal of the resolution. We should properly solve this issue through dialogue and negotiation,” the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said.
