China, Energy policy, Iran, Nuclear weapons


China's trade relationship with Iran, fueled by China's growing energy demand, positions it to have an influence on the goal of industrialized nations of preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program represents serious global and regional security concerns. China's future policies toward Iran will either be in support of Iran or will take a decisive turn and will help to end Iran's nuclear proliferation program. A change in China's energy policy can make it the key player in getting Iran to drop its nuclear weapons program, as it seeks to fulfill its energy demand.
