China Alleges U.S. Double Standard Over Stalled Iran Nuclear Deal
(Bloomberg) — China warned that global rules prohibiting the spread of nuclear weapons are at risk because of different nonproliferation standards being applied to Iran and U.S. allies but drew stiff pushback from an American envoy.
The “double standard” means a half-century of efforts to restrict possession of atomic warheads could begin to unravel, potentially pushing countries toward crossing the nuclear threshold, said Wang Qun, China’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
