Iran says it will host a nuclear disarmament conference later this month, part of efforts by Tehran to show it is not seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

State television quoted Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, as saying yesterday that China will attend the two-day conference slated to start April 17. Beijing has resisted imposing new international sanctions on Iran over its nuclear programme. The conference – dubbed "Nuclear Energy For All, Nuclear Weapons For No One" – will take place days after a US-hosted summit on nuclear security.
