Iran hails China’s support in Vienna talks

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Baqeri hailed China for backing the Islamic Republic’s views in the course of the JCPOA negotiations in Vienna, such as giving priority to the need for the termination of the illegal US sanctions against Tehran.

Baqeri, who is also Iran’s top negotiator in the Vienna talks on the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), held a telephone conversation with Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Ma Zhaoxu on Wednesday.

Pointing to the broad spectrum of cooperation between Iran and China and the convergence of their positions on a wide range of international issues, including the Vienna talks, the senior Iranian diplomat thanked Beijing for its support for the Islamic Republic’s viewpoints in such key topics, as the priority of removal of the illegal US sanctions and the need for Iran to receive guarantees.

Baqeri also touched on the proposals presented by the Iranian delegation to the other parties in the talks in the form of drafts, reiterating that Tehran’s proposals are well-founded and fully documented, the Foreign Ministry’s website reported.
