China expects progress in Iran nuclear talks


19:13, February 26, 2013

ALMATY, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Beijing hopes that the talks held here Tuesday on the Iran nuclear issue would achieve positive results, said China's representative.

"We hope that the parties concerned will work together to push for positive progress with a flexible and pragmatic attitude while accommodating each other's concerns," said Ma Zhaoxu, an assistant foreign minister who heads the Chinese delegation.

Tuesday's talks between Iran and the so-called P5+1 powers -- Britain, China, France, Russia, the United States and Germany -- are the first this year.

"Dialogue and negotiation will be the only correct solution to the Iranian nuclear issue, which is always our stand," Ma told journalists prior to the talks.

Ma noted that China has made great efforts in the talks and believes the parties concerned would finally find some common ground despite differences.

Iran is locked in a bitter dispute with the West over its nuclear activities, with the latter accusing Tehran of developing nuclear weapons under a civilian cover, a charge Iran has consistently denied.

The last round of Iran-P5+1 talks was held in Moscow in June 2012.
