China’s Foreign Ministry said it has “lodged representations” with the US about Washington’s new sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

On Monday, Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang condemned the new anti-Tehran sanctions, describing them as “not helpful”, Reuters reported.

"We have consistently opposed any unilateral sanctions," he told a regular press briefing.

On January 26, the new US administration imposed new sanctions on multiple Iranian and foreign individuals and entities, including companies based in Tehran, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon and China.

On Sunday, senior officials with two Chinese companies included on the sanctions list condemned the move by Washington, stressing that they had exported only “normal” goods to the Islamic Republic like their other regular customers.

"I export to lots of countries, and Iran is a customer too. That's totally normal," Richard Yue, who is on the list, told Reuters on Sunday.

He added, "How is this fair? Why should others pay attention to what Americans say? What's wrong with my daily use goods?"

The other Chinese company on the list is Ningbo New Century Import and Export Co, based in the eastern port city of Ningbo.

Tang who is an export manager at Ningbo New Century also said they made "normal" exports to Iran, adding, "There's nothing we can do. Let them put us on the sanctions list".
