HONOLULU, Hawaii: US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged China to use its influence to raise pressure on Iran after new charges that the Tehran regime is pursuing nuclear weapons, officials said.

Clinton, meeting with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi in Hawaii ahead of a weekend Asia-Pacific summit, talked “extensively” about Iran amid Western calls for further sanctions on the Islamic state, a senior US official said.

Clinton said “it was critical for China to communicate both publicly but also privately with Iran that they were on a course that was dangerous,” the official, who attended the talks, said on customary condition of anonymity.

China, which along with Russia is one of Iran’s main sources of diplomatic support, earlier Thursday rejected calls for new sanctions against Tehran and instead urged further dialogue on its nuclear drive.
