Beijing will continue to trade with Iran despite US sanctions

China will maintain relations with Iran despite the US' attempt to isolate the Islamic Republic by threatening Iranian business partners with sanctions, Gao Feng, a spokesman for the Chinese Commerce Ministry, told reporters during a regular briefing. He said Beijing opposes unilateral sanctions in general and that trade with Iran does not undermine China’s international obligations.
