China is sending an envoy to Iran and Russia to discuss the dispute over Tehran's uranium enrichment program, the Foreign Ministry said Thursday.

Assistant Foreign Minister Cui Tiankai, in charge of non-proliferation issues, will make a "working visit" to Iran and Russia from April 14 to 18, said spokesman Liu Jianchao.

"Recently, there were some developments of the Iranian nuclear issue," Liu said. "We expressed our concern. We are worried about these developments. We hope the parties should exercise restraint and not take any actions that lead to further escalation so we can solve the question properly through dialogue and diplomacy, " reports the AP.
