China urges UN-AU joint action in Sudan

Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping urged the rest of the world to "listen carefully" to the AU and the Arabic countries, so as to not "harm" peace and stability in Sudan.

Report from China Daily by Zhang Haizhou and Li Xiaokun, 28 March 2009:
China urges UN-AU joint action in Sudan
China said on Friday that the right solution for the Darfur problem would be to push forward a joint operation between the United Nations and the African Union, but not arrest the Sudanese president.

"Currently, the international community should push forward the joint operation and political process to ensure humanitarian intervention goes on wheel in the Darfur region," Vice President Xi Jinping said, at a meeting with Awad Al-Jaz, special envoy of the Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, in Beijing.

Xi urged the rest of the world to "listen carefully" to the AU and the Arabic countries, so as to not "harm" peace and stability in Sudan.

In response Al-Jaz said his home country would be cooperative in the deployment of UNAMID's peacekeepers, but won't accept the International Criminal Court's (ICC) arrest warrant against President al-Bashir.

"Sudan will continue cooperation with the UN and the AU, and take concrete measures to improve the humanitarian situation in the Darfur region," Al-Jaz said, wishing an early solution to the problem.
