Kerry and China’s President Discuss Iran Nuclear Negotiations

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who is visiting China, told reporters in a news conference in Beijing that the U.S. takes its role in Asia Pacific “very seriously” and is committed to strengthen its presence in the region. Kerry also spoke of his talks with president Xi Jinping and other Chinese official on on-going nuclear negotiations with Iran.

“Today, we spoke about our shared interest in preventing Iran from ever acquiring a nuclear weapon. Our close cooperation, which we agreed will absolutely continue, will go a long way towards helping to make the P5+1 negotiations continue,” said Kerry. (, 14 February)
