UNITED NATIONS - A Chinese envoy on Monday called for the lifting of sanctions against Sudan as soon as possible.

Following the withdrawal of the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Sudan's Darfur region, the Sudanese authorities have assumed the primary responsibility of protecting civilians. It is, therefore, urgent to strengthen its security capacity, said Dai Bing, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations

Following the withdrawal of the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Sudan's Darfur region, the Sudanese authorities have assumed the primary responsibility of protecting civilians. It is, therefore, urgent to strengthen its security capacity, said Dai Bing, China's deputy permanent representative to the United Nations. "The arms embargo has negative impacts on Sudan's security capacity-building. The Security Council should adjust the sanction measures timely in light of the changed situation."

Security Council Resolution 2620 adopted last month requires the development of benchmarks for adjusting Sudan sanctions by Aug 31 this year. China hopes that this requirement can be effectively implemented, he told the council.

It must be noted that unilateral sanctions are barriers to Susan's development. Unilateral sanctions often fail to solve problems, but may well create new troubles, worsening the food, energy, and economic crisis and harming Sudanese people's livelihoods and causing new humanitarian consequences, said Dai.
