China has agreed to join in the sanctioning process against Iran in an effort to stymie its nuclear-weapons development, Hillary Clinton said Monday. China, as a member of the United Nations Security Council, has the ability to veto sanctions, so its support will be vital. "I think as the weeks go forward and we begin the hard work of trying to come up with a Security Council resolution, China will be involved, they will be making their suggestions," she said. China had been holding up the sanctioning process, saying Iran needed more time. Like China, Russia has been known for its anti-sanction policies, but might now consider enforcing penalties.
