It was a matter of time before China expressed their opinions on the new unilateral sanctions posed by the US. Russia had already expressed concerns last month according to the Rian article I referenced here.
I think the main concern of both Russia and China is that before the UN sanctions have even had time to work, the US and then the EU imposed more sanctions.
Since China actively trades with Iran, and receives 11% of their energy from them, I wonder how long China will continue to support the UN sanctions against Iran now that they are openly objecting to the new sanctions.

If i was iran i wouldnt trust the chinese or the russians. they have already for no good reason supported multiple sanctions and this showed their weaknesses. many of you here may say that the US empire is collapsing, but i tell you that the US empire remains very strong. i mean they got the whole world to agree on sanctions against a nation thats nuclear program did not violate any international laws.

For about as long as we've been intervening there?
