China rejected the proposal of new unilateral sanctions against Iran, considering that confrontation will only cause more detrimental to regional peace and stability.
Spokesman of Foreign Ministry Liu Weimin expressed the position, referring to measures announced by the United States, Britain and Canada against Tehran, which defends its right of using atomic energy in peaceful way.
He added that China has always rejected the unilateral sanctions against Iran. According to the spokesman, pressures, and such actions will not solve the problem fundamentally and only make it worse.
Liu called on the parties to increase dialogue and cooperation, and find a solution through negotiations.
The representative of China to the United Nations and other organizations in Vienna, Cheng Jingye, conveyed the same message last Friday at a board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
