China signalled its intention to continue trading with Iran despite warnings from President Trump, as it relies heavily on Iranian oil.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry stated on Wednesday: “China has consistently opposed unilateral actions and long-armed jurisdiction.

“China’s commercial cooperation with Iran is open and transparent, reasonable, fair and lawful, not violating any United Nations Security Council resolutions.

“China’s lawful rights should be protected.”
