BEIJING - Differences between Sudan and South Sudan should be resolved as soon as possible, China said, as tensions over oil rights simmered.

Vice-President Xi Jinping told Sudanese Foreign Minister Ali Ahmed Karti on Tuesday that China hopes that Sudan and South Sudan can maintain contact for both their interests and the overall regional situation.

Sudan said it welcomed Chinese companies investing in mining and agriculture as the country tries to cut its reliance on oil.

Karti arrived in China for a three-day visit on Sunday and he told Xi that Sudan will solve its differences with South Sudan through negotiations.

South Sudan declared its independence from Sudan on July 9.

However, the two countries have failed to clearly agree their borders.

Tensions mounted recently following a dispute over how much landlocked South Sudan should pay Sudan to export its oil.

The Sudanese army said on Sunday that clashes broke out between its forces and South Sudan forces on the border.
