KHARTOUM, May 15 (Xinhua) -- Sudan and China agreed on Sunday to expand their existing cooperation in oil fields to include other domains like agriculture and industry.
The agreement was signed in Khartoum between Sudan's State Minister for Foreign Affairs Kamal-Eddin Ismail and Chinese Deputy Foreign Minister Zhang Ming.
"The two sides discussed steps on how to enhance cooperation in various fields," Sudan's Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
"China attaches a special concern to building partnership with Sudan in agricultural and industrial sectors," the Chinese deputy minister was quoted as saying.
The talks also reviewed the situations in Sudan's neighboring countries and the stability in South Sudan, Libya and the Horn of Africa region, as well as uniting visions regarding the reform of the United Nations and the UN Security Council.
Earlier Sunday, Sudan's Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour received Zhang who is visiting Khartoum and leading his country's delegation to bilateral political talks.
DOHA, May 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and his Sudan counterpart Ibrahim Ghandour vowed Thursday to further boost bilateral ties.
"China will continue supporting Sudan's legitimate rights and reasonable concerns on the Darfur issue and would encourage more Chinese firms to do businesses in Sudan," said Wang during a meeting with Ghandour after the 7th ministerial conference of the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum held Thursday in Doha.
Wang also noted that the bilateral ties between China and the Sudan have been promoted to a new level since the visit of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir to China last September.Full story
