China seeks peaceful solution to Iran nuclear issue: special envoy

06-11-2010 15:42 BJT

DAMASCUS, June 10 (Xinhua) -- Chinese special envoy to the Middle East Wu Sike said Thursday that China is keen to find a peaceful solution to the Iranian nuclear issue through diplomatic ways.

"China objects Iran to develop nuclear weapons, but it supports, however, its right in the peaceful use of the nuclear energy," he said at the press conference held in the Chinese embassy in Damascus.

"UN resolution does not close the door in the face of the diplomatic solution," he added.

The UN Security Council on Wednesday adopted a resolution to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.

Meanwhile, Wu said China supports all efforts aiming at achieving reconciliation among the Palestinians. He also reaffirmed his country's condemnation of the Israeli attack on Gaza-bound aid flotilla and China's call for the instant lifting of the siege on the Gaza Strip.

This is Wu's sixth visit to the region since he took office in 2009.
