Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Lu Kang's Remarks on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action
2018/01/13

Q: On January 13 Beijing Time, the United States issued a statement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). What is your comment?

A: We have taken note of the relevant statement, especially the part about continuing suspending sanctions against Iran in the nuclear area on the part of the United States. We have also heeded that the international community universally support the JCPOA and fully recognize the efforts made by Iran to implement it.

The Chinese side always firmly supports the JCPOA. We believe that the JCPOA is an important outcome of multilateralism and a model of resolving international hot-spot issues through political and diplomatic means. Ensuring the thorough implementation of the JCPOA is of great significance to upholding the peace and stability of the Middle East region and the international non-proliferation regime and serves the fundamental interests of all relevant parties.

As the JCPOA has not come by easily, all relevant parties should cherish it. Under the current circumstances, we hope that all relevant parties can bear the larger picture and long-term interests in mind, properly handle differences and continue implementing the JCPOA in a comprehensive and effective manner with strong political will.

I also would like to stress that China is always opposed to the unilateral sanctions imposed by relevant countries on other countries in accordance with their domestic laws. This position is consistent and clear-cut.
