China’s foreign minister has said what Iran has done in the course of nuclear talks to help ink a final deal with P5+1 is praiseworthy.
China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has praised Iran’s efforts to help clinch a nuclear agreement in the course of its negotiations with P5+1.
Wang and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif exchanged views in a telephone conversation about the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
Wang hoped that Iran and the six powers would achieve satisfactory results in their nuclear talks.
He noted that the talks have entered a “key stage” and urged the two sides to devote joint efforts and show flexibility to create balance in the negotiations and achieve a comprehensive and just agreement.
The Chinese foreign minister also expressed Beijing’s preparedness to assume a constructive role to help the two sides maintain close interactions.
Zarif, for his part, elaborated on Tehran’s stances and praised China’s helpful role in the course of the nuclear talks.
The next round of the nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, Russia, China, France, the US and Britain, plus Germany is set to be held in the Austrian capital of Vienna on November 18-24.
Last November, Iran and P5+1 clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on January 20 and expired six months later. However, the two sides agreed to extend the deal for another six months and continue to hold talks to reach a comprehensive deal until November 24.
