BEIJING (Dispatches) -- China on Friday slammed a recent U.S. move to impose sanctions on Chinese firms over the allegation that they are linked to the Iranian nuclear energy program.
"We urge the U.S. to immediately correct this wrong practice and earnestly respect the legitimate rights and interests of all parties,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a press briefing. Geng made the comments a day after the U.S. Treasury Department announced new sanctions targeting Iranian, Belgian, and Chinese companies.
