Unilateral sanctions intensify causes of conflict, senior diplomat warns

BEIJING - China strongly opposes the use of military force against
Iran or Syria, a senior diplomat said on Tuesday, warning that a war in
the region will be a disaster both on a humanitarian level and for the
world economy.


Chen Xiaodong, director-general of the Foreign Ministry's Department
of West Asian and North African Affairs, also told China Daily that
unilateral sanctions intensify the causes of conflict rather than
resolve them.

Chen's remarks come a day after Vice-Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai
told China-based foreign reporters that sanctions alone cannot solve the
Iran dispute and stressed that normal trade relations and energy
cooperation between China and Iran have nothing to do with the nuclear
issue.

The diplomats were speaking against the backdrop of rising tension
between Iran and the West over the purpose of Teheran's nuclear program.


US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner arrived in Beijing on Tuesday,
allegedly, to seek support from China for US sanctions on Teheran's oil
industry.

"We prefer negotiation and dialogue in resolving conflict between
countries," Chen said. "We oppose the use of military force against Iran
as it is against international law to use force on a sovereign
country."


Chen made the remarks during an interview with the China Daily
website, the third in a series with senior officials of the ministry.

Against repeated threats of an oil embargo from the European Union
and increasing financial sanctions from the US, Iran has recently
threatened to block the strategic Strait of Hormuz.

The US warned that closing the strait is a red line that Iran should think twice before crossing.

Chen said a war in the region would be a disaster for the countries
involved and depress the global economy as 40 percent of oil shipments
pass through the strait.

"We also oppose some countries who unilaterally impose sanctions on
Iran," he said, adding that sanctions do not solve the causes of
conflict but intensify them.


"China will stick to the UN resolution regarding sanctions on Iran,
but unilateral sanctions by some countries have harmed those that have
normal trade relations with Iran," he added.

Gao Zugui, researcher with the Research Institute for International
Strategic Studies, said China and the US have different positions and
interests regarding Iran, making it difficult to reach consensus.

Jin Canrong, deputy dean of the School of International Relations at
Renmin University of China, said China has proven its constant
principles and stance on Iranian issues.

"China previously voted for sanctions on several companies and
individuals that might be related to nuclear weapons research," he said.
"But increasing sanctions will inevitably harm Iranian civilians and
Iran's normal trade interests with other countries."

Chen said China supports the nuclear non-proliferation system and
opposes Iran developing nuclear weapons, but he stressed that the right
of Iran to use nuclear power peacefully should be respected.

Chen said China welcomes Iran's move to restart nuclear negotiations
and urged relevant parties to ensure regional peace and stability.

Syria

Chen also emphasized that China is strongly against countries doing a
"Libya" on Syria as it would be disastrous for the region.

"China supports the Arab League's mediation because it is a
relatively feasible way of resolving Syrian issues under the current
situation," he said. China is against any military intervention in the
country, he said.

An inclusive political dialogue and negotiation among the parties in
Syria is the key to the crisis and also the key to peace and stability
in the Middle East considering Syria's pivotal geographic position, Chen
said.
