Does China Oppose A Nuclear Iran?
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says China joins the United States in opposing Iran's development of nuclear weapons.
Clinton made the comment following meetings with high level Chinese officials in Washington. If her assessment is accurate, then the squeeze on Tehran has just gotten a bit tighter. But it's hardly news.
In 2006, China's foreign minister traveled there to express that nation's concerns over Iran's uranium enrichment program. In the ensuing years, there's been no movement on the part of the Iranian regime to ensure the world that it's not developing nuclear arms.
