China on Monday alleged that “unilateral bullying” by the United States was the “root cause” of Iran’s decision to expand uranium enrichment.
While regretting Iran’s announcement as a breach of the nuclear deal, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang made it plain that Washington’s policy of imposing “maximum pressure” on Iran was the “root cause of the current crisis”.
Mr. Geng compared Washington’s international conduct to a “worsening tumour” that needed to be removed.
“The U.S. not only pulled out of the nuclear deal, but also exercised unilateral sanctions and long arm jurisdiction over Iran, creating increasing obstacles for the implementation of the deal. And the effects have proven that unilateral bullying act has become a worsening tumour and creating greater crisis and problems worldwide,” Mr. Geng said.
The Foreign Ministry followed up on its fierce attack on Washington by exhorting the “international community” to remain committed to multilateralism and seek political and diplomatic settlement of the issue under international law.
