China has called for an end to the ‘use of force’ against Tehran in a move that will further complicate the push for new anti-Iran sanctions.
Days after the US failed to convince the United Nations Security Council permanent members plus Germany to impose further sanctions against Tehran, China has urged world powers not to resort to ‘force’ over Iran’s nuclear program.
“Major powers should pursue peaceful talks with Iran rather than resort to the willful use of force..."

Let me see if I follow your logic here. A country that turns it's weapons on its own citizens and executes un-armed monks in Tibet is now the worlds moral compass when it comes to conflict resolution?
Let's just call a troll a troll. Is it Janus, or did you accidently hit the J button?
The United States and other countries are particularly concerned about Iranian efforts to acquire or develop weapons of mass destruction because of the Iranian regime's record as a state sponsor of international terrorism. One of the most ruthless terrorist groups supported by Iran is Hizbollah. Hizbollah has been involved in numerous acts of terrorism against Americans and citizens of many other countries, both in the Middle East and in other parts of the world. Hizbollah is the leading suspect in the terrorist bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires earlier this year. The bombing claimed the lives of more than two dozen people.
Because of Iran's support for Hizbollah and other terrorist groups, the United States has placed Iran on a list of countries which may not acquire U.S.-made weapons or other items that could be used in the development of chemical and biological weapons or ballistic missiles. The trade ban includes nuclear-related goods and technology. The United States urges other countries, including China, to adopt similar policies in regard to Iran and other state sponsors of terrorism.

Rooster, I actually agree with JanusFIN.
While China doesn't have the best internal policy toward their people, they do have a MUCH more peaceful history than the United States.

What? What are you smoking? Based on who's history books? China is a communist regime, they constantly write and re-write their own history books. You think the truth is easy to get in an open and free society, try to get it from a closed one.
More peaceful than the United States? Yeah, I'd say you're trolling when you make a statement like that.
lol, I'm gonna have fun with this one...
Wake up man. Has anyone been attacked by China in your lifetime?
And I'd say you're intentionally derailing this thread, considering you're trying to distract from a discussion on International Diplomacy, by arguing that the Chinese people have less civil rights.
Yes, they used to be a Communist regime, now they're more of a mixing pot of political ideologies..
What part about diplomacy between the US, Iran, and China has to do with the religious freedoms of the Chinese people?!
