Spokesman for Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saeed Khatibzadeh denied that the Iran-China talks had been suspended until the US presidential election results were announced.
"The negotiations between the Islamic Republic of Iran and China under the 25-year comprehensive strategic cooperation plan are being carried out seriously and have nothing to do with the election of any country, especially that of the United States," Khatibzadeh added.
The two countries are discussing the details of the agreement and the results will be announced, he added.
The 25-year comprehensive strategic cooperation plan between Iran and China is one of the most important developments in the Middle East, which will not only deepen relations between the two countries but also can have a great impact on the quantity and quality of economic cooperation between the two countries, as well as trade relations in the Middle East.
On the other hand, the news of this strategic plan has caused growing concern among some American politicians who have long been trying to prevent the expansion of Iran's ties with China via the so-called maximum pressure and harsh sanctions against the Iranian nation.
