China supports Video summit on Iranian nuclear issue

BEIJING, August 18 (INP): China welcomes Russia’s proposal on holding a video summit on the Iranian nuclear issue, and applauds Russia’s efforts on de-escalating tensions on this issue and its contribution to regional security.

This was stated by a spokesperson of the Chinese Foreign Ministry Zhao Lijian at a regular news briefing.

In the UN Security Council voting on the US draft resolution, most members were against the US wrongdoing, and held the view that the JCPOA and UNSCR 2231 should be earnestly preserved and implemented.
The spokesperson said, “China firmly endorses the JCPOA and stays committed to upholding peace and stability in the Middle East.

We are ready to work with relevant parties to keep close communication and coordination and advance the political settlement of the Iranian nuclear issue.

The voting result once again shows that unilateralism receives no support and bullying will fail. Any attempt to place one’s own interest above the common interest of the international community is a dead end.

In recent years, in pursuing unilateralism and “America first”, the US has abandoned its international obligations, and withdrawn from multilateral agreements and international organizations, shattering its own credibility.

China urges the US to abandon unilateralism, and stop unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction.

The US should adopt a reasonable and realistic attitude, and return to the right track of observing the JCPOA and the UNSC resolution.”
