MOSCOW, November 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian and Chinese diplomats agreed on Thursday new sanctions against Iran will not yield the desired result.
“During the discussion of the Iranian nuclear program the parties called for its resolution exclusively by political and diplomatic means. A common conviction was expressed that the introduction of new additional sanctions against Iran will not yield the desired result,” the Russian foreign ministry said in comments to a meeting between Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and Director General of the West Asian and North African Affairs department of the Chinese foreign ministry Chen Xiaodong.
The parties also discussed ways of a peaceful settlement of the domestic crisis in Syria.
“Russia and China supported the LAS initiative and believe it is necessary to overcome crisis situations in the Middle East and North Africa without violence and through a broad national dialogue and without any outside interference. The peoples of the region can and should decide their own fate,” the ministry said.
The Russian and Chinese parties called for a resumption of the Palestinian-Israeli negotiations on the existing international legal basis with the final aim of creating an independent, viable, territorially integral, and sovereign Palestinian state in the 1967 borders that will “live side by side in peace and security with Israel.”
