China agrees to look into sanctions busting


China agreed to investigate U.S. findings that some of its companies were assisting Iran in its efforts to develop nuclear weaponry.

“We did provide some information to China on specific concerns about individual Chinese companies, and the Chinese assured us that they will investigate,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said Monday.

Crowley was addressing a Washington Post report that State Department’s sanctions enforcer Robert Einhorn recently handed China a list of companies that allegedly were helping to advance Iran’s missile program and to make more efficient centrifuges required to process uranium.

On Tuesday, the Associated Press quoted Chinese officials as saying that they were “honest” in their efforts to abide by United Nations sanctions on Iran.
