Zhai Jun pointed to the three proposals raised by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi for defusing tension in the Persian Gulf and emphasized, “China believes that the following three solutions can help restore peace and security in the Middle East region: returning Iran to JCPOA immediately for solving the country’s nuclear standoff, paving suitable way for holding talks among Persian Gulf littoral states and a positive and constructive role of extra-regional countries in this regard.”
