Yesterday, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce said that China will make efforts to protect the Iran nuclear deal and defend the legitimate interests in relations with Tehran.
A spokesman for the Chinese Ministry of Commerce, Gao Feng, said in a press briefing in response to a question from representatives of the international media, that China had not received notifications of imposing sanctions on Iranian oil from the administration of US President Joe Biden.
The Chinese statements came after Reuters reported that Iran “indirectly” had transferred record quantities of oil to China in the past few months, even though Chinese customs data did not show the import of any Iranian oil in the first two months of the year.
The increase in Iranian supplies contributed somewhat to the drop in Brent prices from the level of $ 70 a barrel in mid-March.
US President Joe Biden is seeking to revive talks with Iran on the nuclear deal from which former US President Donald Trump withdrew in 2018, but harsh economic measures are still in place, and Tehran insists on lifting them before resuming negotiations.
It seems that there are differences between the United States and other Western powers that signed the 2015 agreement on the one hand, and Tehran on the other hand, regarding which side should return to the nuclear agreement first, which makes it unlikely that the US sanctions, which paralyzed the Iranian economy, be lifted quickly.
