China suggests fresh effort to solve Iranian nuclear issue

China urged all concerned parties to use a new round of talks on Iran’s nuclear issues and seek pragmatic solutions.

“As the new round of talks starts soon, we urge all parties concerned to step up pragmatic efforts, properly settle differences, search for pragmatic and viable solutions, start new phase of substantial negotiations and seek early progress,” reported Xinhua citing foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.

The ministry’s statement came at a time when delegates of five permanent members of the UNSC and Germany started a new round of talks with Iran over its controversial nuclear programme in Geneva Tuesday.

The official reaffirmed China’s commitment to keeping communications with related parties open and making constructive efforts to promote the peace talks on Iran nuclear issues. —IANS
