China objects to US sanctions against Iran

: China said on Tuesday that the United States and other countries should not expand on the latest UN sanctions imposed on Iran over its nuclear programme.
China did not exercise its veto power last month when the UN Security Council approved sanctions that target Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, ballistic missiles and nuclear—related investments. The United States followed that up when President Barack Obama signed a bill on Thursday that imposed tough unilateral sanctions against exports of gasoline and other refined petroleum products to Iran, stated Zee News. It bans US banks from doing business with foreign banks providing services to Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.
“China supports the UN sanctions. China believes that countries should have correct implementation of the sanctions instead of expanding the sanctions,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told a news conference.
The UN sanctions seek to punish Iran for rejecting proposals to halt uranium enrichment and take its nuclear fuel from abroad, though Iran says it is seeking nuclear power only for peaceful energy and medical research purposes.
