Sputnik reported that Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Ms Hua Chunying announced that Beijing stands firmly against unilateral US anti-Iranian sanctions and is seeking to keep trade relations with Tehran in line with international agreements. Washington has failed to persuade China to reduce Iranian oil imports, which is damaging the Trump administration's efforts to isolate the Islamic Republic after the US exit from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, Bloomberg cited officials as saying.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the officials added that at the same time, China pledged not to increase purchases of Iranian crude amid concerns that Beijing would purchasing excess oil from Iran. Doing so would undermine Washington's push to isolate Tehran.

According to the officials, the issue was discussed during a recent visit by Francis Fannon, US Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Energy Resources, to China.
