Q: Algeria's state-owned company said one of the two vessels that Iran seized on July 19 belonged to Algeria and had been contracted to carry oil for China's government-owned energy company. What's your comment on the seizures of the vessels and potential risksto Chinese crude shipment because of this? Do you have any comment on overall US sanctions on companies that buy crude oil from Iran?

A: I'm not aware of the specifics you said, but China's position is clear. China and Iran have friendly cooperation. Our cooperation under the framework of international law in energy and other areas is reasonable and legal. It should be respected and protected.
