Hardball from China amid Iran nuclear deal

The Chinese government refuses to kowtow to the United States on the Iran nuclear deal, adding that it would not pull out of the agreement.


The rest of the world will soon know exactly where the United States stands on this, now that a new Secretary of State has been appointed, creating a platform for President Donald Trump to make a final decision that can be implemented.

Spokesperson in the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Hua Chunying, said Iran had been in compliance with the parameters set out in the agreement, adding that there was no reason to pull out.

“The IAEA is the only international body with the right to supervise the agreement and make judgments about it, and China has noted that the agency has said several times Iran is in compliance,” said Hua on Wednesday.

“All sides need to continue upholding the pact,” added Hua.

However, there is every indication this will not happen, given the grievances that have been expressed by Trump and to some degree his allies.
