| China Strengthens Military Ties With Sudan

This week, Beijing moved to strengthen ties with Sudan. During a visit by Sudan's military chief to Beijing, China's minister of defense said his government is willing to further develop cooperation between the two militaries in "every sphere."

..."We think Sudan's territorial integrity and sovereignty should be respected and a political solution should be found to the Darfur issue through equal dialogue and discussions," he said.

China is the biggest buyer of Sudan's oil and a major source of weapons for Khartoum.
