The Chinese government's top diplomat warned on Tuesday that the world should not open a "Pandora's Box" in the Middle East, as he denounced US pressure on Iran and called on it not to drop out of a landmark nuclear deal.
The Chinese diplomat urged Washington to "alter its extreme pressure methods", adding that "any unilateral behavior has no basis in worldwide law".
Wang also said the Iran nuclear deal was the only feasible way to resolve its nuclear issue, and urged Iran to be prudent. On Monday, Iranian officials said that in 10 days, the nation will increase its uranium stockpile beyond the terms laid out in the deal, unless the European Union affirms its commitments under the agreement.
In May, Tehran said it would begin enriching uranium at a greater level unless the world powers secured Iranian economy from rising U.S. threats and sanctions within 60 days, with given July 8 as a deadline.
The U.S. military response to what the Trump administration says are threats from Iran has so far been a significant show of force across the region.
On Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in blaming Iran for attacks on two oil tankers, but said the US did not want to go to war with Tehran.

Although the US will act to defend itself, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that Trump "does not want war" and the president has said he's open to negotiating with Tehran.
The new United States deployment to the Middle East is in addition to a 1,500-troop increase announced last month in response to tanker attacks in May.

Afterwards, US sanctions were re-imposed on the Islamic republic.The White House warned companies "doing business in Iran will be provided a period of time" to allow them to wind down operations in or business involving Iran or face sanctions on the basis of violating US law. "The U.S. should be in a position of strength to push back on Iran's threat to stockpile uranium".
Relations between the United States and Iran have been tense since U.S. President Donald Trump in 2018 unilaterally withdrew from an global agreement that restricted Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
"This is the direct result of the Trump administration ripping up the Iran nuclear agreement that had been negotiated by President Obama and our European allies", Van Hollen told Yahoo Finance.
"Sadly, the spirit of the JCPOA has been damaged by them and some of the parties of the other side", Rouhani deplored, saying the deal's spirit is supposed to be easier trade and economic interaction with Iran.
