17:02, November 18, 2011

China will continue to strengthen coordination and information sharing in military activities with the parties concerned on the basis of voluntary participation and consultation on an equal footing, Wang said.

China has so far provided 2.2 million U.S. dollars in cash to the African Union(AU) peacekeeping operations in Somalia, and 5 million yuan (780,000 dollars) to Uganda and Burundi respectively to be used for purchasing logistical supplies to support the two countries' participation in African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), he further noted.

He called on the international community to further enhance the capacity of regional mechanisms to respond to the Somali issue, increase financial, technical and logistical assistance to AMISOM and create conditions for the United Nations to take over the tasks of the AU peacekeeping operations in Somalia at an early date.
