China and Russia Start to Play Good Cop Bad Cop on Iran

From the WaPo: China says pressure won't help Iran nuclear solution

BEIJING (Reuters) - Stepping up pressure on Iran was not an effective way to persuade the country to halt its nuclear programme, Beijing said on Thursday, even as China joined other major powers to demand a "serious response" from Tehran.

Meanwhile, Russia has stated it is Leaving the Door Open on Sanctions on Iran

The question should be asked in all of this is: What Will Obama give China to get the same noncommittal action he received from Russia?
