Chinese president tells Sudan counterpart he must do more for peace in Darfur

Some of today's news reports suggest Chinese President Hu might not use his first visit to Khartoum to press hard on abuses, commerce only.

Feb 2 2007 AP report (via IHT) - Chinese president tells Sudan counterpart he must do more for peace in Darfur -
Chinese President Hu Jintao urged Sudan's Omar al-Bashir on Friday to work harder to bring more Darfur rebels into the peace process, a Sudanese official told The Associated Press.

Hu raised the issue during a closed-door meeting during the Chinese leader's landmark visit. The official, who was at the meeting but spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Chinese leader told al-Bashir his "government should work more earnestly to get the rebels who did not sign the Darfur peace agreement to join the peace process."
And the tribal leaders - not forgetting janjaweed - too please!
