U.S. confident on China's position on Iran

BEIJING (Reuters) - The United States is confident that China will have the same position on Iran as other world powers, Jeffrey Bader, a top adviser to President Barack Obama on Asia, said on Tuesday.

He made the comment after a meeting between Obama and his Chinese counterpart Hu Jintao.

Iran’s disputed nuclear program is among the thorny issues on the table during Obama’s trip to China, which maintains strong energy and economic ties with Iran.
