NBC News — China's Foreign Minister tuesday reiterated his country's warning to Iran that they should give up their ambitions for a nuclear weapon. Speaking at a news conference in Beijing, Yang Jiechi said that his country is opposed to the Islamic state possessing nuclear weapons.
Despite the warning, the Chinese Foreign Minister also defended Iran's right to peaceful nuclear power. The comments come a day after the head of United Nations' nuclear watchdog said he had "serious concerns about possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear activities."
