Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi discussed a range of issues at a meeting in Beijing.

The top Iranian diplomat held a meeting with the foreign minister of China in Beijing on Friday.

The
two foreign ministers discussed various issues in the gathering,
including the latest regional developments, Iran’s recent decision to
halt certain commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, the status of
Tehran-Beijing ties, and the ways to promote political and economic
cooperation between the two countries.

Zarif left Japan for China on Friday to hold talks with senior Chinese officials on US’ destabilizing policies.

The Iranian foreign minister paid visits to Russia, Turkmenistan, India, and Japan before travelling to Beijing.

Speaking
to reporters upon his arrival in Beijing, Zarif said, “China is one of
the most important partners of the Islamic Republic, both our political
partner and a very close economic partner and is also a remaining party
to the JCPOA.”

“It is important that in this new stage, we hold
close consultations with China, particularly about the recent
developments, the Islamic Republic of Iran’s decision about exercising
its rights under the JCPOA’s Article 36, and also to talk about the
bilateral ties, and about the very hazardous issues that are today
taking place in our region,” he added.
