China: US withdrawal from JCPOA to destabilize region

Algiers, May 9, IRNA – Chinese Ambassador to Algeria Yang Guangyu said on Wednesday that the unilateral US withdrawal from the JCPOA will destabilize the region.

In an exclusive interview with IRNA, he expressed regret over Trump's decision.

China is concerned over such decision as it might leave negative impacts on regional stability, Yang said.

China will remain committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, he said.

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear-related sanctions on Iran.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union, have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of world peace and security.
