    Chinese are great friend to Northern Sudan but Not South Sudan if am not wrong. South Government should not invited Chinese peacekeepers into western Bhar el Ghazal, this people have got communisms systematic.
    Chinese peacekeepers should be deployed at war site such as Darfure but not south. Am so worry about their coming because they will b supporting north but bringing military equipment illegally into Sudan and that really threat to our people.
