China has denounced the European Union's new unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran as blind pressure and unconstructive.
China has criticized EU's new unilateral sanctions against
Iran's oil exports as blind pressure and unconstructive.

“To blindly pressure and impose sanctions on Iran are not constructive approaches", the Chinese foreign ministry said Thursday in reaction to EU's recent measure against Iran over the country's nuclear program.

The United States and its allies have been accusing Tehran of pursuing a military nuclear program, and have used the allegation to impose four  rounds of UN Security Council sanctions on the Islamic Republic and to take more unilateral measures against the country.

Tehran has categorically refuted the Western allegation, saying that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to acquire and develop nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

The EU slapped new sanctions against Iran in a meeting of the bloc's foreign ministers on January 23.

The 27-member bloc agreed to ban oil imports as well as petroleum products from the major OPEC member state and freeze the assets of the Iranian Central Bank across the EU.

The European Union also imposed a ban on the sale of gold, diamonds, and other precious metals to Iran.
