China says it strongly opposes US sanctions on Chinese firm over Iran oil

Published: Updated:

China’s foreign ministry said on Tuesday that it strongly opposes US sanctions on a Chinese energy firm for allegedly violating restrictions imposed on Iran’s oil sector.

Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the comment at a news briefing, after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States had sanctioned Chinese energy company Zhuhai Zhenrong Co Ltd because it “knowingly engaged in a significant transaction for the purchase or acquisition of crude oil from Iran.”
