6 Mar 2012 CCTV Yang Jiechi is Chinese Foreign Minister. [On Syria and Iran] Peace, stability and development in the Middle East region serves the interests of people in the region and the international community. This is our over-arching purpose and our end goal in dealing with relevant issues in the Middle East. Let me first say a few words about Iran. On the Iranian nuclear issue we are opposed to the development and possession of nuclear weapons by any country in the Middle East, including Iran. At the same time we believe all countries in the Middle East have the right to peaceful nuclear energy. We believe that this issue should be properly handled and resolved through dialogue, not confrontation. Through peaceful means, not sanctions. I believe the majority of countries in the world take such a position. P5+1 Mechanism on Iran -- China has stayed in close communication and coordination with US, Russia, the EU and other members concerned. We hope to see early holding of the next round of dialogue under this mechanism. So as to push forward the process of seeking a proper settlement of the Iranian Nuclear issue. Thank you.
