China Says Door Not Shut To Negotiations With Iran

From Reuters:

China’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday there was still room for a negotiated solution to ’s disputed nuclear program, despite talks among major powers of fresh sanctions against Tehran.

China has been among the six countries, also called the “5+1,” engaged in deepening discussions on a proposed new round of United Nations Security Council sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

China, a veto-holding permanent member of the Security Council, has been wary of backing new sanctions on Iran, arguing that they do not work and fearful of damaging its extensive ties with the major oil supplier.
