Senior generals of the Chinese and Sudanese armed forces agreed on Monday to extend cooperation.
"The Chinese armed forces would like to boost exchanges and cooperation with the Sudanese army," Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission Xu Caihou told visiting Sudanese Defense Minister Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein.
Xu said bilateral relations had entered a new stage in recent years as the cooperation in various fields was stepped up.
Relations between the two armed forces, an important part of bilateral relations, had developed smoothly and friendly cooperation had deepened, Xu said.
He also briefed guests on China's military development.
Abdel Rahim Mohamed Hussein, who arrived last Thursday on an official goodwill visit, said Sudan was committed to developing military relations and promoting cooperation with China.
He also appreciated China's stance on Sudan's western region of Darfur, which has been embroiled in a conflict since early 2003.
He reiterated the Sudanese government's stance on the one-China policy.
