China, EU Agree to Maintain Close Communication on Iran
Adjust font size:

China and the European Union (EU) have agreed to maintain close contact on how to peacefully resolve the Iran nuclear issue through negotiations, according to a press release from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.


The consensus was reached between Chinese Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana when the two talked on the phone on Wednesday evening, said the foreign ministry release.


"Solana briefed Li about his talks with the Iranian side on the nuclear issue during his recent visit to Iran," the release said.


Solana went to Tehran on Monday to present Iran with a package of incentives, which was agreed last week by the five UN Security Council permanent members -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States -- as well as Germany, in exchange for Iran's suspension of uranium enrichment.
