China seeks ‘win-win’ agreement on Iran N-issue

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying

China says it will work with parties involved in the negotiations over Iran’s nuclear energy program to accelerate the achievement of a “win-win” final agreement.

“China is willing to work in concert with all parties and make constructive efforts for an early and win-win agreement that is comprehensive, fair and balanced,” Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China’s Foreign Ministry, said on Monday.

The Chinese official called on Tehran and the P5+1 group to work hard in order to reach a comprehensive agreement on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear energy program before the November 24 deadline.

“What is pressing now is for all parties to push vigorously ahead with the negotiations so as to reach a comprehensive agreement as scheduled,” she said.

“To realize this goal, it is fairly important for all parties to maintain the political momentum of negotiations and inject more political impetus and creative thoughts into negotiations,” Hua said.

The Chinese official further expressed Beijing’s support for any “thoughts and advice that can drive forward the negotiations.”

Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – China, Russia, Britain, France, and the United States – plus Germany are in talks to work out a final deal aimed at ending the longstanding dispute over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

Last year, the two sides clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on January 20 and expired six months later. However, they agreed to extend their talks until November 24 as they remained divided on a number of key issues.
