Updated: 2006-03-09 15:02

China called on Thursday for negotiation to defuse a standoff over Iran's nuclear ambitions, saying there was still room for cooperation.

Foreign Minister Li Zhaoxing, speaking on the sidelines of the annual full session of parliament, said China supported European Union and Russian engagement to resolve the nuclear crisis.

"On the Iran nuclear issue, yesterday (IAEA director Mohamed) ElBaradei said the problem should be solved through peaceful negotiations," Li told reporters. "That makes sense. There is still room for cooperation... We support EU and Russian engagement with Iran."
