It would be wrong to assume that the Arab world has nothing to gain by the removal of the threat of a nuclear Iran. [
Iran DOES NOT have nuclear weapons.
Try to keep up.
Power plants do not equal nukes.
That is all.

All the same, what Mr Z.B. had to say still suggests a slightly different slant on things and makes me wonder what message he was really sending out -- and to whom.
Just as an aside, during my digging around for SOFA info, I realized that the famous shoe-throwing incident occurred at the press conference following its signing.
BEIJING — China will not support increased sanctions on Iran as a way to curb its nuclear program, a government spokeswoman said Thursday.
Although China has generally opposed the use of sanctions, the announcement is sure to complicate President Obama’s efforts to impose tougher penalties on Iran, should international talks over Tehran’s nuclear ambitions, scheduled for Oct. 1, fail to make headway.
“We always believe that sanctions and pressure are not the way out,” said Jiang Yu, a foreign ministry spokeswoman, during a news conference. “At present, it is not conducive to diplomatic efforts.”
On Wednesday, the White House savored success after Russia, a longtime opponent of economic sanctions, said it would consider tough new sanctions against Iran.
As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, China has veto power over any decision by the body to impose sanctions.
