ImageBEIJING, Nov 26 (Reuters) – China is "in principle" considering supporting an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution demanding Iran immediately mothball a uranium enrichment site it hid for years, a vice foreign minister said.

He Yafei told Reuters on Thursday the resolution, to be voted on by the 35-nation IAEA governing board later this week, was meant as a signal to Iran to respond to a nuclear dispute proposal.

"We hope that the IAEA (board) can send a signal that Iran should indeed respond to the IAEA proposal as soon as possible. At the same time, we hope that this issue can be resolved through consultation," He said.
