Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi and his British counterpart David Miliband on Sunday exchanged views on the situation in Sudan's Darfur region during a telephone conversation.
Yang said China supports the UN Security Council resolution on authorizing the deployment of a hybrid force in Darfur.
The Chinese foreign minister said the resolution should fully represent the consensus of the United Nations, the African Union (AU) and the Sudanese government and help deploy a mixed AU-UN peacekeeping mission in Darfur as soon as possible.
Yang stressed that the international community should continue to support its "double track" strategy -- a balanced combination of political processes and the peacekeeping mission -- and to promote a complete settlement to the Darfur conflict.
