China Says Working With West To Avoid Darfur Strife

From Reuters:

China, the biggest foreign investor in Sudan, said on Sunday it was trying to work with Western powers to lessen the fallout from war crimes charges filed against Sudan’s president.

Liu Guijin, the special Chinese envoy on Darfur, said he held talks in the United States, Britain and France to discuss the charges brought by the International Criminal Court (ICC) prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo.

He accused Sudan’s President Omar Hassan al-Bashir in July of masterminding a campaign of genocide in Sudan’s Darfur.

“I used those opportunities of visits to Western capitals to have consultations with our partners in the West as how we could work together to seek a kind of a softer landing for the charge,” Liu told reporters in Khartoum after talks at Sudan’s Foreign Ministry.
