BEIJING, March 7 (Xinhua) -- China welcomes the positive progress made by the international community in resolving Iran's nuclear issue, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said Wednesday.

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton accepted Iran's offer to resume talks on Tuesday in a reply to

Iranian nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili.

Liu said France, Britain, Germany, China, Russia and the U.S. recently reached a consensus with Iran on resuming the talks.

Liu said China has always worked to peacefully resolve the Iranian nuclear issue through dialogue. He said China has made positive efforts to push for resumption of the talks.

"We will work with the other five members of the six-nation mechanism to push for the early resumption of talks with Iran, maintain the dialogue process and find a comprehensive, long-term and appropriate way to resolve the issue," Liu said.

For me as a Muslim, the life of a single Muslim is worth more than the life of the whole of the Jewish International community. And if rogue countries such as Israel, India, USA, UK, and France can have Nuclear weapons then any country of the world can have nuclear weapons. Nobody is the policeman of the world. And Israel has committed enough crimes against humanity to justify its complete elimination from the world map.
