Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action
China is against another extension of the deadline for Iran to reach a deal with world powers in talks on its nuclear programme, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in Tehran on Feb. 15.
"They have been extended twice, we hope that they will not be for a third time," Wang said at a joint news conference with Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.
The negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, that is, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany, regarding Iranâs nuclear enrichment program was extended on Monday for another seven months, just hours before the deadline.
The United States and Iran sought Nov. 23 to bridge gaps in negotiations on the eve of a deadline for a nuclear deal, as Iran signalled it was open to extending the talks by up to a year.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry went into a fifth round of talks in Vienna with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif ahead of the Nov. 24 deadline.
