China: West's sanctions talk hinders diplomacy on Iran

Discussions amongst world powers over imposing possible sanctions on Iran will complicate the situation and might make it harder to find a diplomatic solution, Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said on Thursday.

Speaking to reporters during a visit to France, Yang said he wanted to see more direct talks between Iran and the international community over Tehran's nuclear program.

"To talk about sanctions at the moment will complicate the situation and might stand in the way of finding a diplomatic solution," Yang said.

"China firmly supports the international nuclear non proliferation regime .. All countries, Iran included if they obey by IAEA rules, have a right to a peaceful use of nuclear energy," Yang said.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Tuesday Iran was ready to send its enriched uranium abroad in exchange for nuclear fuel

However, Western powers talk of a fourth round of U.N. sanctions against Iran.
