TEHRAN - A senior Chinese diplomat arrived in Tehran on Sunday to discuss Iran's nuclear program, amid differences between China and the West over how to resolve the dispute it has caused.

The agency quoted Ma as saying China was interested in accelerating talks between Iran and the P5+1 group, comprising the United States, France, Germany, China, Russia and Britain.
