He added the Chinese government provided farming equipment and machines to former rebels absorbed into the disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programmes.

The envoy also said China provided 50,000 beds for the Student Support Fund, pointing out that arrangements are underway to receive a Chinese contribution of $1 million for child mortality reduction project in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

China has been Sudan’s largest foreign investor, particularly in oil and telecommunications after western firms shunned the East African nation due to conflicts and sanctions.

It has invested more than $20 billion in Sudan mostly in the oil sector during the past two decades. Beijing provides low-interest loans and weapons transfers in return for oil.

    My lowly informed South Sudanese fools, we have been trading with the Chinese people since anyone can remember. You can "move from Cape Town in the so-called South African, right up to Bejieng, China. Fellows, we are the Ancient Egyptians, there will be no so-called ’Abesh (so-called ethiopians) and other bunch of evils we don’t want here in our country>>>
