A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman on Thursday urged Iran to consider international concerns about its nuclear program and to cooperate with the United Nations' nuclear agency on the issue. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang called on Teheran to work together with the International Atomic Energy Agency to resolve the dispute. "At present the issue is at a crucial juncture," Qin said at a regular press briefing. "A peaceful solution through negotiation is ... the best choice."
