China: Tension in region to adversely  affect int'l economy

Beijing, May 22, IRNA – Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said that tension in the Persian Gulf region will secure no country’s interests and will adversely affect the global economy.

Asked about China’s view on the tension between the US and Iran, Lu Kang said that Beijing believes that there is no room for conflict and dispute and dialogue is the only solution to the issue.

He hoped that both sides would return to dialogue to deescalate tension and remove concerns.

China is worried about the situation and that’s for the same reason that it is seeking to convince both sides to settle the dispute through dialogue, he said.

China’s economic and trade ties with Iran are legitimate and legal and nobody can stop them, Lu Kang said.
