( During his state visit to China, Israeli President Shimon Peres said Tuesday that China is a key to preventing a nuclear Iran.

“China has a central role in the efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb. Iran is the center of terror in the world. Iran funds terrorism and exports it across the entire Middle East and beyond,” said Peres, whose trip was the first to China by an Israeli president in 10 years.
