BEIJING, April 12 (Xinhua) -- Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang Friday told a news briefing that no matter how the situation in Sudan changes, China will continue to maintain and develop friendly cooperative relations with Sudan.

Sudanese Defense Minister Awad Mohamed Ahmed Ibn Auf on Thursday announced the ousting of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and the government, declared a state of emergency for three months and was sworn in as head of the transitional military council which he said will rule the country during a two-year transitional period.

"China always adheres to the principle of non-interference in other countries' internal affairs and believes that Sudan is capable of handling its internal affairs and safeguarding national peace and stability," Lu said.
