China's envoy to Russia: JCPOA important and cannot be replaced
China expects all parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program to take their obligations seriously, new Chinese Ambassador to Russia Zhang Hanhui said.
The agreement "is very important and cannot be replaced," he pointed out. "China highly values Iran’s strict compliance with the plan, which was repeatedly confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency, and hopes that other JCPOA participants will also take their obligations seriously," TASS cited the Chinese ambassador as saying.
Zhang Hanhui was hopeful that the international community would make every effort possible to protect the economic benefits the agreement offered to Iran, creating conditions for Tehran to continue implementing its obligations. According to the ambassador, the United States’ rejoining the nuclear deal is "the only real and effective way" to resolve the Iran nuclear issue.
