The Chinese special envoy to Sudan Liu Guijin told reporters on Monday that he would travel to Addis Ababa and Ndjamena to hold talks over peace process in Darfur region and Sudan Chad relations.

Guijin, who visits Khartoum after taking part in a meeting of the UN Security Council permanent members in Doha, stressed his visit to Ndjamena aims to end the current conflict between the two neighboring countries.

The tension between Sudan and Chad is detrimental to the strategic issues in the long run, especially the two countries are friends to China, the special envoy said in Khartoum after a meeting with the presidential assistant Nafi Ali Nafi.

China opposed the condemnation of the Sudanese government at the UN Security Council earlier last month after an attack by the Sudan supported Chadian rebels against the government of President Idriss Deby.

Ndjamena summoned the Chinese ambassador to protest against this position.

Guijin met today with the Sudanese president Omer Al-Bashir and attended the signing ceremony of a humanitarian grant for Darfur region.

China has extended a grant aid of 20 million Chinese Yuan (3 million US dollars) to Sudan for humanitarian activities in the three states of Darfur. The aid agreement was signed by the State Minister at the Ministry of International Cooperation, Elias Niamlel, and the Chinese Ambassador to Sudan, in the presence of the China’s Special Envoy on Darfur issue Liu Guijin.

The Chinese envoy stressed that achieving peace and stability in the Sudan will enable the exploitation of its resources to achieve the great realizations in economic and social development.
