China calls for diplomatic resolution on Iran

23 February 2010 [20:44] - TODAY.AZ
China has once again called for greater diplomatic efforts to resolve the dispute over Iran's nuclear energy program, calling on all parties to "show flexibility."
China's Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said Tuesday that all relevant parties involved should promote dialogue and negotiations and show flexibility.

"We hope all parties concerned will continue to show flexibility and work for the comprehensive and proper resolution of the Iranian nuclear issue through diplomatic means,” he said.

Washington has threatened Beijing with diplomatic isolation if it does not go along with punitive measures against Tehran.

Tehran denies it wants to build an atomic bomb and says its enrichment is for electricity generation and medical isotopes.

"China believes that in the current stage, all relevant parties should continue deepening diplomatic efforts to maintain and push forward the process of talks and negotiations," Chinese spokesman said.
