China says committed to U.N. sanctions on Iran

Sure they do !

China always tells you what you want to hear .

(Reuters) - Beijing is committed to enforcing United Nations sanctions against Iran over its controversial nuclear program, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday, responding to a U.S. media report that Chinese firms were bypassing the sanctions.

The Washington Post, citing an unnamed senior U.S. official, reported on Monday that the Obama administration had asked Beijing to ensure Chinese companies were not helping Iran improve missile technology or develop nuclear weapons.

China has backed U.N. Security Council resolutions pressing Iran to abandon disputed nuclear activities, which Western governments say are aimed at giving Iran the means to make weapons. Iran says the program is purely for peaceful purposes.

"The Chinese side has always advocated that every country should implement the relevant U.N. resolutions about the Iran nuclear issue comprehensively, accurately and seriously," Foreign Ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu told a regular news briefing.

"We think it is not only good to maintain the integrity of the non-proliferation regime, but also peace and stability in the Middle East," Ma added.
