Chinese Ambassador to Tehran Pang Sen underlined that his country is determined to continue cooperation with Iran despite the US pressures and sanctions.

“These sanctions can complicate relations somehow, but we will continue our cooperation with Iran despite all these problems,” Pang said on Wednesday, Fars News Agency reported.

He underscored Beijing’s commitment to its undertakings based on the 2015 nuclear deal, and said, “We expect the European members (signatories) of the nuclear deal to remain committed to their undertakings based on the deal as the EU has declared.”

“China is interested in keeping the nuclear deal,” Pang said.

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington would no longer remain part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and promised to reimpose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran.

Other signatories to the deal–namely Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany–are in favor of keeping the landmark agreement and are trying to salvage the internationally-supported agreement.
