China wary of harsh sanctions on Iran, eyeing trade

On Tuesday in China, a top American envoy discussed the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs, among other subjects, with Chinese officials. Details of the talks with Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg were not disclosed.

China has a close trading relationship with Iran, and its support will be key in any effort to impose new sanctions against the country.

John Delury, the associate director of the Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations, joins Martin Savidge to discuss China’s willingness — or lack thereof — to go along with sanctions.
