(ECNS) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi talked with his Iranian counterpart Hossein Amir-Abdollahian via telephone on Monday, centering around regional tensions between Iran and Israel, said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lin Jian at a press conference on Tuesday.

During the phone call, Wang said China strongly condemns and opposes the attack on Iran’s embassy in Syria and that the attack is a serious and unacceptable violation of international law.

China noted Iran’s statement that its action was restrained and was an act of self-defense in response to the attack on its embassy, Wang added.

China appreciated Iran’s emphasis on not targeting regional and neighboring countries and its reiteration of its continuing commitment to a good-neighborly and friendly policy. China believes that Iran is fully cognizant of the situation and will avoid causing further turbulence while defending its sovereignty and dignity, Wang said.

He further pointed out that the ongoing situation is a spillover of the escalating Gaza conflict and there should be no more delays in implementing the UN Security Council Resolution 2728, achieving a ceasefire in Gaza, truly protecting civilians, and avoiding further deterioration of the humanitarian disaster. 

“China will maintain communication with Iran, and work together toward a full, just and lasting settlement of the question of Palestine. China and Iran are comprehensive strategic partners. China is ready to steadily advance practical cooperation in various fields with Iran to make greater progress in China-Iran relations,” the spokesperson concluded.
