BEIJING: A Chinese foreign ministry’s spokesperson Monday said China would cooperate with Iran without violating its international obligations.
“The Chinese government has consistently opposed any country’s implementation of unilateral sanction against other countries in accordance with its domestic laws,” Hua Chunying said during her regular press briefing held here.
Responding to a question whether Chinese companies will withdraw from Iran, she reiterated that the Chinese government has consistently opposed any country’s implementation of unilateral sanctions against other countries in accordance with its domestic laws.
China and Iran have always maintained normal economic and trade exchanges. China will cooperate with Iran without violating its international obligations, she added.
As for the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue, she said that China has repeatedly stated its position.
The spokesperson said, recently, when State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with senior representative of the EU’s foreign and security policy in Brussels, he once again stated China’s position on this issue.
“We believe that compliance with international agreements is a basic common sense of international law. Great powers should play an exemplary role for this purpose,” she added.
Hua said that China will work with the EU to continue to firmly safeguard the seriousness and authority of the comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear issue.
