KHARTOUM, Dec. 11 (Xinhua) -- China's Special Envoy for African Affairs Liu Guijin has said that preserving peace and stability between Sudan and South Sudan is in the interest of the two countries and China encourages them to stick to the peaceful option, the Chinese embassy in Khartoum said Sunday.

The Chinese envoy held talks with Sudanese First Vice-President Ali Osman Mohamed Taha in Khartoum on Saturday and they exchanged viewpoints regarding the current situation between Sudan and South Sudan.

According to a statement issued by the Chinese embassy in Khartoum, Liu said that "Sudan and South Sudan are neighbor countries and preservation of peace and stability between them is in the interest of both sides."

"China encourages the two parties to stick to the peaceful option, adopt active procedures to avoid further escalation and resolve the difference through dialogue and negotiations," he added.

"China believes that the two countries' leaders are capable of resolving the current issues," he said.

The envoy expressed worry over the escalation on the border areas between Sudan and South Sudan, the two countries' failure in negotiations to achieve any tangible progress, and their difference over the oil issue.

"The international community, including China, expresses concern towards these developments," said Liu.
