Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni is to visit China to lobby for intensified United Nations sanctions against Iran, officials and news reports said Thursday. Yediot Ahronot said Livni would leave for Beijing on Saturday to try to persuade the Chinese not to veto a new round of economic sanctions against Iran, which is suspected of trying to develop nuclear weapons. A Foreign Ministry official, speaking on condition of anonymity as Livni's trip has not yet been officially announced, said she planned to pay a brief visit to China "in the near future" for talks that would include the Iran issue.
