China. US withdrawal from nuclear deal at root of all problems

Also in reaction to the latest developments, the Chinese authorities considered that the “maximum pressure” exerted by the United States is at the root of renewed tensions with Iran. At issue, the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran.

“Although Iran is forced to break the deal due to external factors, [Teerão] showed moderation, “said the spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

For China, the agreement can only survive through a “political and diplomatic” solution, an end to outside interference and avoiding “any measures that could further complicate the situation.”

The nuclear deal limited Iran’s atomic program in exchange for lifting international sanctions, but US exit weakened the pact.

Europe has tried to take steps to safeguard the deal, but the special payment channel aimed at circumventing sanctions has not yet been launched.

The Iranian government announced on Sunday that it had eliminated the last of its commitments, the limit on the number of centrifuges of about 6,100 for uranium production.

However, Tehran said it would continue to cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which Geng interpreted as a “clear” signal of the “political will to fully and effectively implement the agreement.”
