Chinese, Iranian FMs discuss implementation of Iran nuclear program

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in a telephone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif discussed the implementation of a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

BEIJING (Sputnik) — The two officials also discussed the reconstruction of the nuclear power plant in Arak.

“After reaching a comprehensive agreement, Iran and the P5+1 group has been actively carrying out their obligations. In general, the implementation is progressing very positively. We hope that all parties will continue to adhere to such a responsible position, continuously enhancing mutual trust and fulfilling the provisions of Resolution 2231, including speeding up the reconstruction of the nuclear power plant in Arak,” Wang Yi told his Iranian counterpart.

The Chinese minister said China will continue to play a constructive role in the matter. The conversation took place on Wednesday at the initiative of the Iranian side.

In July 2015, Iran and six world powers, including the United States, Russia, China, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, signed the nuclear agreement to ensure the peaceful nature of Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
