China has complained repeatedly to the US about unilateral sanctions against Chinese individuals and companies linked to either Iran or North Korea’s nuclear or missile programmes.

US President Donald Trump extended wide sanctions relief for Iran called for under a 2015 international nuclear deal even as he imposed the new penalties.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China followed local rules and regulations and closely adhered to its responsibilities to the international community.

She told a daily news briefing: “China is opposed to the blind use of unilateral sanctions particularly when it damages the interests of third parties.

“I think the sanctions are unhelpful in enhancing mutual trust and unhelpful for international efforts on this issue.

“China has lodged representations with the United States and hopes the US side can on the principle of mutual respect resolve non-proliferation issues through dialogue and communication.”
