China’s Wu Urges Diplomatic Solution to Iran Nuclear Standoff

March 09, 2012

Wu Hailong, China’s ambassador to the European Union, said a diplomatic solution is needed in the international standoff over Iran’s nuclear program.

“I couldn’t think of a worse proposal to resolve the Iranian issue than by resorting to force,” Wu told reporters today in Brussels. He called on Iran to show flexibility and work with international community.

On the potential impact on oil prices, Wu said, “I don’t know what kind of disaster there could be.”
