Iran, China Discuss Joint Strategy to Confront US Hegemony

TEHRAN Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Head of the International Liaison Department of the Communist Party of China Song Tao in a meeting in Tehran conferred on the two countries' bilateral ties and ways to confront the US hegemony.

During the meeting in Tehran on Tuesday, Zarif and Song underlined friendly relations between Iran and China in all fields, specially meetings between the two countries' presidents in recent years.

They also discussed the two countries' common strategy on international developments, including the US unilateral policies in violation of the international rules and the country's attempts to impose its hegemony on the world.

The two high-ranking officials also exchanged views on the most important issues in bilateral relations and the latest developments in the region and the world.

Song had also on Monday met Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri.

During the meeting, Jahangiri underlined that his country's economy had remained stable one year after the US imposed the toughest embargos against Tehran.

"The US imagines that it can zero down our oil sales by exerting pressure on the countries which purchase Iran's oil to lead Iran's economy towards a collapse, but fortunately, the situation of Iran's economy enjoys an acceptable stability one year after the US oil sanctions," Jahangiri said.

He described China as the main economic partner of Iran and oil customer, and said, "All high-ranking Iranian officials have put the strategy to develop ties with China on their agenda as a serious mechanism."

Elsewhere, Jahangiri warned that the US is after endangering the Middle-East and Persian Gulf security, and said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran's policy is based on supporting multilateralism and confronting the US hegemony and we are ready to cooperate with China in regional and international dimensions in this regard."

He also warned of the US "dangerous" attempts to transfer the ISIL terrorists from Syria to Afghanistan, stressing the need for standing against Washington's plots.

Jahangiri also referred to Iran's modification of its nuclear deal undertakings as a move to safeguard the agreement, saying that Iran will resume its halted undertakings once the other parties to the deal come to comply with their undertakings.

Song, for his part, blasted the US unilateralism and bullying, and said, "China is determined to develop relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and there will be no change to the agreements between the two countries, while the two states can also share their experiences to confront the US pressures."
