|Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhang Qiyue's Comment on the Iran-EU agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue|
Q: On 15th of this month, Iran reached an agreement with the European Union on suspending its uranium enriching and reprocessing activities. What comment does China have on this?
A: China has always advocated the proper solution of the Iranian nuclear issue through negotiation and made positive efforts to this end. We welcome that Iran decided to voluntarily suspend all its uranium enriching and reprocessing activities and reached an agreement with the EU in this regard. We appreciate the diplomatic efforts made by Iran, the EU, the IAEA and other parties concerned. China supports the EU and Iran in continuing their negotiation, so as to attain a long-term resolution. We hope that the Iranian nuclear issue could be appropriately resolved within the framework of the IAEA at an early date. China will continue to play a constructive role to this end.
