China is urging a dialogue between Sudanese factions as an apparent military coup roils the nation.
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on Monday that China wanted all parties in Sudan “to resolve their differences through dialogue so as to maintain peace and stability of the country.”
He told reporters that China would continue to closely follow the turbulence in Sudan and “take necessary measures to ensure the safety of Chinese institutions and personnel there.”
China is a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council and major investor in Africa.
The arrests on Monday of Sudan’s interim prime minister and other officials plunged Sudan’s fragile path to democracy into uncertainty following the 2019 ouster of longtime president Omar al-Bashir.
During al-Bashir’s harsh rule and despite allegations of his government’s human rights abuses, China was Sudan’s biggest trading partner and key international partner.
