|China opposes ‘blind’ sanctions against Iran||
TEHRAN – Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Thursday that dialogue is the only way to resolve the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program, Xinhua reported.
Hua made the remarks when asked to comment on possible further sanctions over Iran’s nuclear program.
“We believe that Iran, as a signatory of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, possesses the right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes while following relevant international obligations,” she said at a daily press briefing.
Blind sanctions will not help to resolve the issue and the use of force is even more unacceptable, Hua said.
Practices in the past year have proven that the maintenance and promotion of negotiations will help to properly solve the problem in a comprehensive way, she said, adding that recent talks in Kazakhstan resulted in active results.
China believes all relevant parties should increase diplomatic efforts in a flexible and practical manner and launch substantive negotiations at an early date, she said.
In February, representatives of Iran, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany held a new round of talks concerning Iran’s nuclear program in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
