BEIJING, June 6 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and China are against the use of force and threats against Tehran, according to a joint statement issued by Chinese President Hu Jintao and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday, June 6.
“Russia and China are against the use of armed force or threat of force, do not approve excessive pressure on Iran or adoption of unilateral sanctions against it, favour intensified negotiations on issues related to the Iranian nuclear programme and peaceful settlement through dialogue and talks, and call for prevention of further confrontation around Iran,” the statement said.
Such confrontation “is fraught with serious negative consequences not only for countries in the region but also for the international community as a whole, especially against the background of general instability in Afghanistan, the Middle East and North Africa”, the statement said.
