Xinhu, the official Chinese news agency, reported on Friday that Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing has placed a call to Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Motteki.
The report emphasized that China wants to resolve the nuclear issue "peacefully."
For over a year I have been hammering away on just this issue.
Iran respects China. Iran needs China in the international community.
China is beginning to let Iran know that they do not want a nuclear arms race in the Middle East.
