Zarif briefed Irans position on the attack on its general. Zarif strongly condemned the violent actions of the US side, saying that the actions of the US side will have serious consequences. Iran has written to the UN Secretary General in this regard, hoping that China can play an important role in preventing the escalation of regional tensions.
Wang Yi expressed that the US military adventure violates the basic norms of international relations and will aggravate regional tensions and turbulence. China opposes the use of force in international relations. There is no way out for military means, and extreme pressure is even more impractical. China urges the United States not to abuse force and seek solutions through dialogue. China will uphold an objective and just position and play a constructive role in maintaining peace and security in the Middle East and the Gulf region.
