China and Sudan: Natural Partners?

With China’s role in once again int he spotlight thanks to Steven Spielberg’s decision to withdraw from the Olympics, the BBC takes a closer look at the Beijing-Khartoum relationship and asks how realistic it is to expect China to be the one to stop the bloodshed:

I found the diplomats of various Western countries judged Sudan and the Chinese a little less harshly than the US, the Nobel laureates and Steven Spielberg.

Their view is that China is slowly coming round to see that it would be better to persuade Sudan to co-operate with the international community.

And they believe Sudan is not altogether happy to turn its back on Western countries, including the Americans.
