The visit, although not officially announced, is considered part of the young nation’s efforts to strengthen its ties with Beijing.

China was among the countries that recognised South Sudan’s independence in July 2011, and has since maintained strong relations with the latter in its oil, construction and telecom sectors.

Last year, China agreed to help South Sudan develop a mining sector and also pledged to lend between $1bn and $2bn for the road, power and agriculture projects in the new nation.

Currently, the biggest investor in new nation’s oil industry, the Asian country has played a limited role in the ceasefire negotiations to resolve South Sudan’s crisis, in line with its policy of non-interference in domestic affairs.

In May, China reportedly agreed to send an infantry battalion 850 soldiers to reinforce the United Nations peacekeeping mission in South Sudan. UN officials, however, said this was the first time China would be sending a combat unit to its peacekeeping operation, having previously provided logistical and protection units in Mali and Sudan’s Darfur region.

      First of all, We in Equatoria consider wani Igga as a Dinka because all his support comes from Dinka and not equatoria. Secondly, China last time promise Salva and then change mind within hours. Is China stupid to invest in a government that is crumbling and is falling at any hour, day, month and year? What they are doing now is take money quickly before they are kick out of power. Wani, you are
