Amir-Abdollahian stressed that Iran supports the Global Development Initiative and Global Security Initiative proposed by the Chinese side.

Wang Yi said, President Xi Jinping is going to chair the BRICS Summit and High-level Dialogue on Global Development, which will be of great significance in strengthening BRICS mechanism building, enhancing solidarity and cooperation among emerging markets and developing countries, and promoting the international community to jointly address the challenges facing development issues. China attaches great importance to China-Iran relations and is ready to work with the Iranian side to continue to firmly support each other on issues related to each other's core interests and major concerns in the spirit of a comprehensive strategic partnership.

Amir-Abdollahian briefed on the latest progress of the negotiation on the resuming compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, saying that the bullying behavior of the United States is the main obstacle facing the current negotiation. The Iranian side will firmly safeguard its national interests and is also firmly committed to resolving differences through negotiations in order to reach an agreement at an early date.

Wang Yi said, China does not approve of any nonconstructive moves that lead to a spiral of escalation of the situation. All parties should continue to uphold the correct logic of right and wrong and unremittingly promote to reach an agreement through diplomatic efforts. China opposes the politicization of IAEA affairs and supports the resolution of outstanding issues through dialogue and cooperation between IAEA and the Iranian side. The U.S. side should earnestly recognize its responsibilities and respond positively to the reasonable demands of the Iranian side. China will continue to uphold justice and support the promotion of the negotiation process, and is willing to maintain close communication with the Iranian side.
