China urges Sudan, South Sudan to remain calm, restrained


21:01, June 13, 2013

BEIJING, June 13 (Xinhua) -- China on Thursday urged Sudan and South Sudan to remain calm and resolve disputes through negotiations.

"We call on both sides to remain calm and restrained, take care of each other's major concerns, implement the agreements and settle disputes through negotiations and consultations so as to safeguard the overall situation of the two sides," Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a daily press briefing.

Hua's comments came after Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir on Saturday announced that South Sudan's oil exportation through Sudan's territories would stop starting from Sunday due to South Sudan's support for the Revolutionary Front rebel forces.

Hua said China is closely watching the recent twists in relations between Sudan and South Sudan and their impact on the oil sector.

Maintaining normal oil production and exports in South Sudan not only concerns the major economic interests of both countries, but also influences their overall relations, Hua said.
