By staff

Beijing, China – The New China News Agency (Xinhua) reported Jan. 14 that China’s Foreign Ministry voiced its “strong dissatisfaction and firm opposition” to the United States' decision to impose sanctions on a Chinese company, the Zhuhai Zhenrong Corporation.

“As many other countries, China maintained normal cooperation with Iran in energy, economy and trade fields,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin said when asked to comment on the sanction for the news agency.

The report also stated: “The United States attempted to internationalize its unilateral sanction measures against Iran, and to implement sanction against the Chinese company according to its domestic law, ‘which is groundless,’ Liu said.”
