|U.S. behind Iran’s nuclear crisis: China Daily||
TEHRAN - The United States has been blowing the dispute over Iran’s nuclear activities out of proportion with the aim of achieving its own purposes in the region, Ma Xiaolin, an observer of Middle Eastern affairs, wrote in an op-ed article published in the June 20 edition of the China Daily.
“It is the U.S. (that) has sensationalized Iran’s nuclear program as a global issue,” part of the article read.
Ma wrote, “The U.S. has its own agenda in exaggerating the Iran nuclear crisis: to prevent an external enemy from becoming a nuclear state, and maintaining, even strengthening, the military dependency of other Middle East countries on the U.S., so as to export weapons to them and keep military bases in their domains.”
Elsewhere in his article, Ma stated that “the United States has just heightened tensions by issuing new trade sanctions that include China and Singapore.”
“The U.S. will not truly implement its sanctions against China and Singapore either, because it does not want to face too many opponents. After all, no matter if the U.S. wants to or not, it has to seek cooperation with, rather than opposition from, China to solve many international issues,” he wrote.
