Iran and Israel, being regional adversaries in West Asia, have strong ties with China. As a variable, Iran's position in the Middle East has affected the Israel-China bilateral relationship. The key question of this paper is how Iran, as a variable, affects China and Israel relations. The research has been conducted through a descriptive-analytical method using library sources. According to the findings, the following factors influence the relationship between China and Israel: China's considerations about the balance of power between the major players in West Asia, such as Iran and Israel; China's considerations about Iran's anti-American standpoint and Iran's stance against America's regional allies (such as Israel); and China's considerations about maintaining Iran as a stable energy supply chain. Iran's revisionism and anti-US role in the international system structure, in contrast to other powers such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Israel, whose actions favor maintaining the status quo in the Middle East, establish a balance, the consequences of which can be seen in China's stable supply of energy.
