China urges Iran to consider global concerns
Beijing, Aug 23: China today urged Iran to consider international concerns over its nuclear programme and be constructive, but added all sides should remain calm.
The Foreign Ministry said it had received Iran's response to a package of proposals to resolve the nuclear standoff with the West and was ''conscientiously'' studying it.
''The Chinese side hopes Iran earnestly considers the concerns of the international community, and takes the necessary constructive steps,'' the ministry said in a faxed statement.
''We also hope that other parties remain patient and calm,'' it said.
