China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi has praised Iran’s efforts to bring about the achievement of a nuclear agreement in the course of its negotiations with the P5+1.

Wang and his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif exchanged views in a telephone conversation about the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Wang hoped that Iran and the six powers would achieve satisfactory results in their nuclear talks.

He noted that the talks have entered a “key stage” and urged the two sides to devote joint efforts and show flexibility to create balance in the negotiations and achieve a comprehensive and just agreement.

The Chinese foreign minister also expressed Beijing’s preparedness to assume a constructive role to help the two sides maintain close interactions.

Zarif, for the Iranian side, elaborated on Tehran’s stances and praised China’s helpful role in the course of the nuclear talks.

The next round of the nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, Russia, China, France, US and Britain, plus Germany is set to be held in the Austrian capital of Vienna on November 18-24.

Last November, Iran and the P5+1 group clinched an interim nuclear accord, which took effect on January 20 and expired six months later. However, the two sides agreed to extend the deal for another six months and continue to hold talks to reach a comprehensive deal until November 24.
