Chinese Ambassador to the United Nations Wang Guangya on Friday called on the international community to solve the Iran's nuclear crisis through diplomatic way.
"Under the current situation, to talk about sanctions and military measures on Iran's nuclear issue is counterproductive," Wang told Xinhua after the Security Council got the latest report from IAEA.
Meanwhile, he told reporters said "there are a lot of problems in the region and we should not do anything that would cause the situation to become even more complicated."
Wang, who is the rotative president of the Security Council, also objected to set deadline for the issue, saying "putting deadline is always putting pressure."
The UN Security Council received the IAEA report on Iran, which says Teheran had failed to comply with UN deadline to end uranium enrichment activities.
The Security Council unanimously adopted a presidential statement on March 29, calling on Iran to resume suspension of all uranium enrichment-related activities within 30 days.
