    Wang Yi: Beijing and Paris should support JCPOA

During a meeting with his French counterpart, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that China and France should strengthen coordination and cooperation in international affairs and safeguard international agreements such as JCPOA.

Iran Press/Asia: Calling upholding multilateralism an imminent task, the foreign ministers of China and France also said their two countries have to go against the rising trend of unilateralism around the world, as they met on Sunday in Paris.

Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed the importance of multilateralism to his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian, calling it essential to most countries' well-being, especially less developed countries.

Without multilateralism, the international order set following the end of the World War II would be severely damaged and that could be devastating to these countries, Wang said, adding this was the consensus among other European countries he met with on his recent trip.

Wang said that China and France, as major countries, should actively promote the idea and actions of multilateralism internationally.
