China says it will continue to seek a peaceful solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. A Foreign Ministry spokesman made the remarks on Thursday.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said, "China is highly concerned with the Iranian nuclear issue. We have been keeping in contact with all the relevant parties to push forward a diplomatic and proper resolution to the issue and make progress."

Earlier on Wednesday, the US State Department announced that six world powers had discussed imposing new sanctions on Iran, but no consensus was reached. The discussion was the latest in a series of consultations among the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany. China has reiterated that peaceful talks remain the most effective way to solve the Iranian nuclear issue.
