Adjust font size:

China on Tuesday welcomed Iran's latest move to resume talks with six major powers.

"Iran's proposal to restart talks with the six nations is an important step, which China welcomes," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said.

On Wednesday, Iran handed over its latest package of proposals, in a bid to start again suspended talks on global issues with six major powers: China, the United States, Russia, Britain, France and Germany.

The talks will be the first since a 2008 session in Geneva ended without substantive progress.

Jiang called for the parties involved to seize the opportunity and step up diplomatic efforts. "The parties should resume negotiations and seek positive results from the talks."

The talks have been scheduled for Oct. 1, European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana was reported as saying, but the venue has not been decided yet.
