China said Tuesday that sanctions should not be used to resolve the standoff between some Western countries and Iran as a way to persuade the hardline Islamic regime to drop its nuclear program. The United States, France and Britain are among the countries coming out strongly in favor of new sanctions as part of an effort to force Iran to abandon its nuclear program that Washington says is an attempt to acquire an atomic bomb. China has joined fellow permanent UN Security Council member Russia in opposing such measures.
