Our nuclear programmes are completely transparent. But we are ready to show greater transparency and make clear for the whole world that the steps of the Islamic Republic of Iran are completely within international frameworks.

HSBC Wednesday cut its forecast for China's GDP growth this year to 7.4 percent, down from its previous forecast of 8.2 percent.
