"China is a friendly country and supports Sudan’s unity and stability, and therefore, the activities of the Chinese envoy reflect the level of this distinguished relation," Salahedden said.
The Chinese envoy is expected to meet with European officials, African Union Mediator Djibril Bassole, and United Nations Representatives. The meeting will take place in El-Fasher, the capital city of North Darfur.
The United States will not participate in the meeting, AFP quoted diplomatic sources.
Beijing is a known supporter of Khartoum. It has invested heavily in Sudan’s natural resources – particularly in oil.
China’s soft-policy on Sudan has been criticized by many world leaders and the marginalized Sudanese.
