Li, according to Xinhua, made the remarks during a meeting with a delegation from the South Sudan ruling party (SPLM), led by Kom Kom Geng.

China, the vice president said, attaches great importance to developing relations with the world’s youngest nation, further pledging the its commitment to work with the latter, to enhance political mutual trust and deepen people-to-people exchanges as well as pragmatic cooperation.

“The Communist Party of China (CPC) is willing to step up exchanges at all levels with the SPLM to push forward the bilateral friendship and cooperation,” Li reportedly said

Geng, also chairperson of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) in the country’s national assembly, said his delegation hopes from China’s ruling party the experience of state governance, as well as promote bilateral cooperation in investment, education and culture.

In April last year, Chinese President Hu Jintao also held talks with South Sudanese President Salva Kiir, where both leaders agreed to expand and enhance pragmatic cooperation in all areas and advance friendly cooperative ties.

Hu at the time, said the bilateral friendly cooperation between China and South Sudan, is in line with the fundamental interests of the two peoples, and also beneficial to the development of a new type of China-Africa strategic partnership as well as regional peace and development.

During his meeting his South Sudan counterpart, the Chinese president made a three-point proposal on further developing bilateral friendly cooperation and enhance cooperation, but within the framework of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC).

    It’s a briliant idea and policy to create more allies than enemies in economy. On the other hand, it’s important to first examine once country’s relations that exist against the benefits as a result of those economic ties. This is because, South Sudan is such a new state with a mineral which is the most wanted by all economies. Therefore, any move by South Sudan externally is closely monitored.

      bilateral relationships either from communist or Capitalist state is crucial but South Sudan need to be more wiser on how she make friendship with such countries, to avoid neglecting her citizen interest for the purpose of creating relationship.

    This is a move to kill democracy, presidential term limits, a blow to those who clothed us when we were naked due to war, fed us with their foodstuffs from thousands of miles when we were forcefully forced to perish due to hunger and most importantly forced peace to effect by forcing the belligerent sides to agree on that. We must learn to tread thoughtfully for the benefit of our future.
