China criticizes US effort to reduce Iran oil salesTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - China opposes Washington's "unilateral sanctions and long-arm jurisdiction," said a foreign ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang.

He said Beijing's dealings with Iran are "reasonable and legitimate."

U.S. officials told reporters the Trump administration will inform other governments they no longer will be exempt from sanctions.

China, which relies on imports for about half of its oil, could present the toughest diplomatic challenge in trying to enforce the Trump administration's ambition of driving down Iran's oil exports.
