Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is on an official visit in Beijing, called Tuesday on the groups opposed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to respect the international decision.
At a joint press conference with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, Zarif urged US and regional opponents of JCPOA to respect the international will to solve global problems through peaceful solutions.
Zarif criticized the emergence of non-constructive approaches in the US political atmosphere and said, unfortunately some in the US and in the region, including the Zionist regime, pursue their interests through conflicts and tensions.
He expressed hope that all sides adopt the will of the international community to solve important issues in the world through peaceful ways.
Zarif also welcomed China’s constructive role in implementing the reconstruction of Arak heavy water reactor as well as other plans envisioned in JCPOA.
Zarif expressed hope Tehran and Beijing will maintain their present positive approach to bilateral relations.
The Chinese foreign minister, for his part, said Beijing and Tehran agreed to start talks within the framework of strategic cooperation.
Iranian and Chinese economies are supplementary to each other, said Wang Yi, adding that his country is keen to deepen ties with Iran.
He called on all sides of the nuclear talks to be committed to their obligations.
China stresses the importance of the implementation of JCPOA as soon as possible, he said.
Beijing will stay true to its political commitments, he said, adding that his country and Iran believe that the fight against terrorism is necessary.
