China has made clear to the United States and four other world powers that it dislikes a proposed ban on new investments in Iran's energy sector as part of a new round of U.N. sanctions, diplomats said on Sunday.

After months of delay, China reluctantly agreed to join the other permanent members of the Security Council and Germany -- a group often referred to as the "P5-plus-one" -- in New York last week to begin drafting a sanctions resolution against Iran for refusing to suspend its uranium enrichment program.
