January 08, 2009 KHARTOUM (Xinhua) -- China and Sudan signed here on Thursday a certificate of handing over ten wells drilled by Chinese companies in the arid western Sudanese region of Darfur.
Chinese Ambassador to Sudan Li Chengwen and Sudanese Commissioner for the Humanitarian Assistance Affairs Hasbu Mohammed Abdullah signed the document at a ceremony attended by Liu Guijin, the special representative of the Chinese government for Darfur, who is currently visiting Sudan.
Expressing his government's thanks for the assistance provided by the Chinese government to Darfur, Hasbu noted that China had become the country providing the most assistance of development to the western Sudanese region, which had been ravaged by armed conflicts.
He told reporters that schools, wells, power stations and other projects built with the Chinese assistance were being put into operation, and have played an important role in helping the displaced people return to their homes and resume their life and production.
Liu Guijin promised that the Chinese government would provide more concrete assistance to Darfur, highly praising the efforts exerted by the Sudanese government to realize peace, stability and development in Darfur.
The ten wells, all located in the South Darfur state, constituted one part of projects of development assistance provided by the Chinese government to Darfur.
Chinese companies completed the exploration, drilling, and assembling pumps and water tanks in a short period, meeting the urgent demand of the local residents. Editor: Yang Lina
