Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif arrived in Beijing on Sunday and met the foreign minister on the first leg of a whirlwind diplomatic tour designed to try and rescue what is left of the international nuclear deal after the US pulled out last week.
Zarif told his Chinese counterpart that the leaders of the two countries have always sought “comprehensive strategic cooperation”, ISNA reported.
Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi hailed bilateral relations saying that “he was sure Zarif’s trip is crucial in defending the Iranian people’s rights along with regional peace and stability.”
He said he was happy that Zarif had chosen Beijing as the first destination of his three-nation tour, noting that this is an indication of the importance of Sino-Iran collaboration.
