SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – China has censured the United States for the imposition of new sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters in Beijing on Friday that her country “has consistently opposed” sanctions against Iran over its peaceful nuclear energy program.
She renewed China’s call for the resumption of talks between Iran and the P5+1 group -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany -- about Tehran’s nuclear program.
Hua said, “We have always seen negotiations and cooperation as the best way to solve the Iranian nuclear issue”.
The new sanctions are included in the $633-billion military bill for 2013, which US President Barack Obama signed into law on Wednesday night.- www.shfaqna.com/English
