BEIJING - Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao told visiting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Wednesday that China opposes any Middle East country acquiring nuclear weapons, state news agency Xinhua reported.

Iran is at the center of a standoff over its disputed nuclear program, which the West suspects is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. Iran says its aim is the peaceful production of electricity.

Wen added that China "upholds that the Iranian nuclear issue should be addressed through diplomatic channels in an impartial way," the report added.

Ahmadinejad is in China to attend a security summit hosted by the Russia- and China-led Shanghai Cooperation Organization.
