US Praises Chinese Actions In Darfur

From AP:

Two senior U.S. officials on Wednesday praised China for increasing pressure on Sudan to change its behavior in but said Beijing can do much more to stop Khartoum from harming civilians in the Sudanese region.

Thomas Christensen and James Swan, deputy assistant secretaries of state for East Asia and Africa, respectively, also told lawmakers that the U.S. is pushing China to reconsider its close military ties with “repressive regimes on the continent.”

The officials said in joint prepared testimony that China’s support of Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, and others “who rule through guns and intimidation, harms China’s image and undermines its ability to play the role of responsible stakeholder in Africa’s affairs.”
