Our friends @ the UN and China:
Last year the United Nations Security Council, which includes China, formally imposed sanctions on Iran’s military and most of its banks for nuclear proliferation activities. A spokesman for Iran at its U.N. mission in New York declined to comment. China “has been strictly implementing” U.N. proliferation sanctions on Iran, said a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry in Beijing. The export of restricted items such as high-grade metals, which include specialized aluminum and titanium, is prohibited, he added.
Good one. I’m _sure_ countries like China, is fully enacting the sanctions. Yup. Huge amounts of financial gain have no influence on world events. Nope.
