Push Sanctions?

NYT Headline:

U.S. Says China Will Push Sanctions Against Iran

From the same article:

China has also agreed to begin negotiating the wording of a United Nations resolution that would impose additional sanctions on Iran for defying the international community on its nuclear ambitions. But administration officials cautioned that China’s agreement to start talking about the resolution did not imply that it would support robust sanctions against Tehran — a step it has historically resisted.
It took three reporters to write the article, it jumps from arms control to currency manipulation to missile treaties. All under a headline that misstates what is reported. "Why bother?" we ask plaintively.
