China says, the US as the culprit of the current Iranian nuclear crisis, should thoroughly rectify its erroneous policy of maximum pressure on Tehran.

“Effective implementation of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is the only correct way to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue,” China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin stated during the regular press conference on Monday.

“China firmly supports efforts to bring the agreement back onto the right track at an early date,” he added.

“On this basis, Iran should resume full compliance. Other parties should all play a constructive role to this end,” he said.

“The six rounds of negotiation on resumption of compliance held during the first half of this year have made important headway. All parties should resume negotiation at an early date and look for flexible and pragmatic solutions to outstanding issues and work for new breakthroughs,” the spokesperson noted.

“China will continue its close communication with relevant parties and participate constructively in the negotiation. At the same time, we will also firmly safeguard our legitimate and lawful rights and interests,” Wenbin continued.
