China Reaffirms Alliance with Iran Days After the Ayatollah Releases Video Showing Assassination of President Trump


China and Iran reaffirmed their opposition to the United States’ sanctions against Iran on Friday.

At the same time Iran comes out with a video showing the assassination of President Trump, China and Iran reaffirmed their opposition to the United States sanctions against Iran.

Reuters reports:

China reaffirmed its opposition to unilateral sanctions by the United States against Iran as the Chinese and Iranian foreign ministers announced the launch of a 25-year cooperation agreement aimed at strengthening economic and political ties.

In a meeting on Friday in the city of Wuxi, in Jiangsu province, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi also backed efforts to revive a 2015 nuclear deal between major powers and Iran.

A summary of the meeting between Wang and Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian was posted on China’s foreign ministry website on Saturday.

Wang, who is also State Councillor, said the U.S. bore primary responsibility for the ongoing difficulties with Iran, having unilaterally withdrawn from a 2015 nuclear deal between the major powers and Iran.

Under the terms of that deal, in return for the lifting of international sanctions, Iran would limit uranium enrichment activity, making it harder to develop nuclear arms – although Tehran denies having plans for nuclear weapons.

Late last week Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei released a video showing an assassination attempt of President Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
