Zarif to Visit China

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will visit Beijing next week to discuss Iran's nuclear agreement and efforts to boost ties with Beijing, China's Foreign Ministry said on Friday.
China and Iran have close diplomatic, economic, trade and energy ties, and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi has been active in pushing both the United States and Iran to reach agreement on the nuclear issue.
China had long railed against unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States and Europe, though it has supported UN measures, and had denounced threats of force.
Zarif will travel to China on Sept. 15 at the invitation of Wang, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a news conference, Reuters reported.
News of the visit came a day after a Republican-backed effort to kill the Iran nuclear agreement was narrowly blocked in the US Senate, clearing the way for its implementation.
Under the deal, agreed in July, sanctions imposed by the United States, European Union and United Nations will be lifted in return for Iran agreeing to temporary curbs on its nuclear work.
In July, Chinese President Xi Jinping told US President Barack Obama that China would work with the United States and others to ensure the implementation of the agreement.
