Q: It is reported that Sudanese government forces and the Sudan People's Liberation Army are engaged in constant exchange of fire in the Abyei region. At present, Sudanese government forces have held this region and announced the dissolution of the local transitional administrative institution. What is China's comment?
A: China expresses concern about the recent conflict in Sudan's Abyei region. We hope Sudan's north and south stick to peaceful choice, exercise restraint, continue to resolve their disputes through dialogue and negotiation on the basis of mutual understanding and mutual accommodation and earnestly implement the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. It is not only conducive to enduring peace in Sudan, but also peace and stability in the area.
