Beijing: China on Thursday said economic sanctions on Iran were not "constructive approaches".

The European Union on Monday agreed to place an embargo on Iran`s oil exports and to introduce a number of other financial sanctions.

"To blindly pressure and impose sanctions on Iran are not constructive approaches," Xinhua quoted a Foreign Ministry statement as saying.

China has consistently advocated settlement of international disputes through dialogue and consultation, the ministry said.

It said China hopes the relevant parties will take approaches which are conducive to regional peace and stability.
