China opposes US unilateral sanctions on Iran

Geng reiterated China’s position after the U.S. Department of Treasury Thursday announced the latest round of unilateral sanctions against Iran over the latter’s uranium enrichment activities, with four Chinese companies on the list.

“China is always resolute to oppose the United States for imposing unilateral sanctions against other countries including China and the so-called long-arm jurisdiction by quoting its domestic law. We urge the U.S. side to immediately correct such wrongdoings, and earnestly respect all parties’ legitimate rights and interests. The Chinese side has lodged representations with the U.S. side over the above issue. The U.S.’ maximum pressure on Iran by means of unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction is the root cause of the current tension over the Iranian nuclear issue. We urge the United States to earnestly respond to the concerns of the international community and return to the right track of upholding the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iran nuclear issue,” said Geng.

Geng said China firmly opposes nuclear proliferation in any form, and has always been strictly committed to its relevant international obligations and is dedicated to enhancing international cooperation in the non-proliferation field.
