China says hopes Iran nuclear deal stays intact amid Trump criticism

China said on Monday it hopes the Iran nuclear deal will stay intact, playing an important role in keeping the peace, after a senior US official said President Donald Trump is expected to decertify the agreement.
The official, speaking last week on condition of anonymity, said Trump was also expected to roll out a broader US strategy on Iran that would be more confrontational. The Trump administration has frequently criticized Iran's conduct in the Middle East.
