China’s Xi says to prioritise energy cooperation with Iran

China will prioritise its energy and financial cooperation with Iran, as the recent nuclear deal means there is now even more opportunity to work together, Chinese President Xi Jinping told his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani. China and Iran have close diplomatic, economic, trade and energy ties, and China has been active in pushing both the United States and Iran to reach agreement on the nuclear issue.

Meeting in New York on the sidelines of the United Nations, Xi told Rouhani that once the nuclear agreement was put in force “Iran will have ever more opportunity for foreign cooperation, and Sino-Iran ties will face a new development opportunity”, China’s Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
