Beijing will continue strengthening the strategic partnership with Tehran "regardless of how the situation changes", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has told at a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Economic Diplomacy Mahdi Safari.

On Tuesday, Wang took part in a meeting of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization’s foreign ministers, on the sidelines of which he had a meeting with Safari.

“Regardless of how the situation changes, China will continue strengthening the China-Iran strategic partnership, protect common interests of both sides and continue working for peace in the region and the world,” the Chinese Foreign Ministry quoted Wang as saying on Tuesday.
