China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

China said on Mon­day that it is me­di­at­ing with South Su­dan’s feud­ing par­ties in its “own way”.

Bei­jing is main­tain­ing close com­mu­ni­ca­tion with South Su­dan, its neigh­bor­ing coun­tries and re­gional or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the African Union, For­eign Min­istry spokes­woman Hua Chun­y­ing said at a reg­u­lar news brief­ing.

“We will work with all par­ties to help the con­flict­ing sides solve their dis­putes through di­a­logue, and help South Su­dan re­sume sta­bil­ity as soon as pos­si­ble,” Hua said.

South Su­danese Pres­i­dent Salva Kiir met Chi­nese Am­bas­sador to South Su­dan Ma Qiang on Satur­day and briefed him on the lat­est sit­u­a­tion in the coun­try, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease on Mon­day.

Ma called for early and un­con­di­tional po­lit­i­cal di­a­logue to solve dif­fer­ences through peace­ful means, said the news re­lease on the web­site of Chi­nese em­bassy in South Su­dan.

Ma also asked the South Su­danese govern­ment to take mea­sures to en­sure Chi­nese na­tion­als and or­ga­ni­za­tions are safe in the coun­try.
