Chicago USA, Oct 19 (): The US intelligence believes that many Chinese companies have been helping Iran with its nuclear program and missile technology. These companies have been operating in violation of the UN sanctions. Therefore it has asked the Chinese government to do more to stop those companies from doing so.
The US believes that Iran is trying to build a nuclear bomb even though Iran denies it.
Uranium which has been used as a fuel for nuclear power can also be used to produce a nuclear explosion. The state department official Robert Einhorn visited Beijing last last month to oversee the enforcement of sanctions against Iran and North Korea. The Chinese government promised the official that it would take the appropriate steps to stop any violations.
State department spokesman PJ Crowley told reporters that the Chinese government assured that it will investigate the concerns that US have about individual Chinese companies.
