This week’s framework nuclear deal with Iran was also good for boosting relations between China and the United States, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a call with US Secretary of State John Kerry. The agreement can be attributed to all sides seizing a historic opportunity through concerted efforts, Wang told Kerry, China’s foreign ministry said in a statement released late on Friday.
“China and the United States, both taking on major responsibilities in safeguarding the international nuclear non-proliferation system, maintained good contact with each other during the negotiations, while instilling positive energy into bilateral relations,” the statement cited Wang as saying.
“In a bid to finalize a comprehensive deal as scheduled, China will maintain close coordination with all parties concerned, including the United States, and continue to play a constructive role during the process,” Wang added.
