China calls for diplomatic solution on Iran

Dec 16 2013, 6:08am CST | by

Beijing, Dec 16 (IANS) China Monday urged all parties to be committed to a diplomatic solution of the Iran nuclear issue after the US blacklisted additional Iranian companies and individuals suspected of evading sanctions against Iran.

Beijing, Dec 16 — China Monday urged all parties to be committed to a diplomatic solution of the Iran nuclear issue after the US blacklisted additional Iranian companies and individuals suspected of evading sanctions against Iran.

The US move Dec 12 sparked anger in Iran which halted talks with representatives of the world powers in Vienna at an event designed to work out the details of a November deal, reports Xinhua.

The P5+1 group - the US, Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany - struck a deal with Iran in Geneva Nov 24 in which Iran agreed to freeze part of its nuclear programme in exchange for limited easing of sanctions which have hurt its economy.

Hua Chunying, spokeswoman of the Chinese foreign ministry, said at a daily news briefing Monday that Iran's framework agreement with the P5+1 group marked "an important step" for a diplomatic solution of the issue and called for all parties to follow the principles of mutual respect during the implementation of the deal.

"All parties should be committed to a diplomatic solution on the issue and strike while the iron is hot so that we can take the first steps as soon as possible," Hua said.

China will continue to advocate peace and talks and play a constructive role in achieving a comprehensive and proper solution of the issue, she added.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Sunday that Iran would continue to seriously negotiate in Geneva despite the "inappropriate moves" by the US.

Washington Must Not Ignore Iran's Threat against Camp Liberty

Oct 30 2014 4:10am CDT | Source: Big Government

The Iranian regime has been conspicuously furthering its agendas in Iraq while a U.S.-led coalition is fast busy countering the mounting threat of the Islamic State, an extremist group that has occupied large swaths of Iraq and Syria in past months. Included among Tehran’s strategic goals in Iraq are the empowerment of its proxy Shiite militia forces and the further suppression of Iranian dissidents residing in Camp Liberty. Unless Washington takes the correct measures and counters Iran’s adv ...

ISIS Still Threatens Yazidis On Mount Sinjar

It was the imminent threat of a massacre on Iraq's Sinjar mountain that first drew U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State militant group in August. That threat never went away. On Monday, Islamic State militants returned to attack Sinjar, prompting members of the Yazidi minority living in the area to find refuge up the mountain yet again. Many had never left their homes, even though ISIS fighters continued to surround the mountain. Swedish jo ...

Obama's Kobani Crossroads

Oct 14 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

Obama has consistently disregarded the advice of his military experts on the ISIS threat. And he seems to have written off the Kurdish-Syrian town of Kobani, which may soon be overrun by ISIS. Whatever the U.S. accomplished after about a decade of war in Iraq has, in a matter of months, deteriorated to a situation that may become unprecedented in its instability and threat to Western interests. Obama’s clumsy depart ...
