Chinese Ambassador to Sudan Li Chengwen Tuesday delivered a batch of aid to the local government of the western Sudanese region of Darfur.
As the fundamental way out for Darfur lies in development, the delivery of the aid, including electric generators, pumps and medical instruments, is conducive to regional development of the conflict-torn region, said Li at the delivery ceremony in Nyala, capital city of the South Darfur State.
The aid not only embodies the China-Sudan friendship, but represents the sincere hope of the Chinese government for the early realization of peace in Darfur, said the Chinese ambassador.
China will continue to play a constructive role in the efforts to properly resolve the Darfur issue, he added.
Applauding and appreciating China's long-term impartial assistance, Sudanese Energy and Mining Minister Awad Ahmed al-Jaz said that China's aid will play an important role in the regional reconstruction and development of Darfur and help the displaced people in the war-torn region return to their homes at an early date.
On behalf of the recipients, South Darfur Governor Ali Mahmud expressed his heartfelt thanks for China's generous assistance and its unremitting efforts to solve the Darfur issue.
