Thursday, 01 Apr 2010 08:24 AM

BEIJING - China reiterated on Thursday it will continue to work for a peaceful solution to the Iran nuclear issue, as it confirmed Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, is on a visit to China.

"China will continue to seek a diplomatic settlement to the Iranian nuclear issue through constructive efforts," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang at a regular news briefing.

Qin's remarks came as reports said six world powers - China, Russia, the United States, Britain, France and Germany - have discussed putting new sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program.

But Qin gave no indication about sanctions but said the six countries held a conference call on Wednesday evening and that "all parties agreed to continue to maintain contact through various channels".
