China urges US to lift all illegal sanctions against Iran

TEHRAN, Apr. 03 (MNA) – Stating that the US unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA is the root cause of the tension in the Iranian nuclear situation, the Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson urged the US to lift all illegal sanctions against Iran.

"Iranian nuclear situation is at a critical stage," said Hua Chunying at her regular press conference.

"China has all along taken a just position and played a constructive role on the issue. We will take an active part in the JCPOA video conference to consolidate the consensus on preserving the JCPOA and discuss a roadmap for the US and Iranian resumption of compliance in a synchronized, reciprocal manner, and work for the JCPOA to get back on track at an early date," she added.

"I want to stress that the US unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA is the root cause of the tension in the Iranian nuclear situation. We welcome the willingness of the US side to return to the JCPOA. The pressing task now is for the US to lift all illegal sanctions against Iran and long-arm jurisdiction over a third party. This is an inherent requirement of the return to the JCPOA. On this basis, Iran should resume full implementation of the nuclear deal," Chunying noted.

"China will work with other parties to advance the political settlement process of the Iranian nuclear issue, and at the same time resolutely safeguard its legitimate rights and interests," the spokesperson highlighted.
