China (IP)- China's Foreign Ministry Spokesperson once again called for the lifting of all sanctions on Iran.

Iran Press/Asia: Attending her regular press conference on April 2, 2021, and responding to a question about the JCPOA, Hua Chunying said: "The Iranian nuclear situation is at a critical stage. China has all along taken a just position and played a constructive role on the issue."

"We will take an active part in the JCPOA video conference to consolidate the consensus on preserving the JCPOA and discuss a roadmap for the US and Iranian resumption of compliance in a phased, reciprocal manner, and work for the JCPOA to get back on track at an early date," he said.

The Chinese diplomat stated, "I want to stress that the US unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA is the root cause of the tension in the Iranian nuclear situation. We welcome the willingness of the US side to return to the JCPOA. The pressing task now is for the US to lift all illegal sanctions against Iran and long-arm jurisdiction over a third party. This is an inherent requirement of the return to the JCPOA. On this basis, Iran should resume full implementation of the nuclear deal."

"China will work with other parties to advance the political settlement process of the Iranian nuclear issue, and at the same time resolutely safeguard its legitimate rights and interests," the spokesperson stressed.
