"As regards new US sanctions against Iran, that include Chinese companies, we made a representation to the US side," Lu said at a briefing.
In July 2015, Iran, the European Union, and the P5+1 group of countries, namely Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom, the United States and Germany, signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to ensure the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program. Under this agreement, Iran pledged to refrain from developing or acquiring nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of sanctions imposed against Iran.
