China demands diplomacy on Iran's nuclear program
In light of Russia and the west planning new sanctions on Iran with regard to it's nuclear program, China has come forward demanding that diplomacy with Iran be given more time.
China's latest statement came as a senior US diplomat, James Steinberg, arrived in Beijing on the highest level visit since relations when American and Chinese relations briefly tensed up two weeks ago.
Iran rejected a UN International Atomic Energy Agency claim it was not co-operating with its investigation.
World powers say Iran is enriching uranium to make nuclear weapons, but the Tehran government continually denounces this claim stating their program is for civilian purposes.
