ADDIS ABABA Jan 6 China, the biggest investor
in South Sudan's oil industry, called for an immediate ceasefire
in the world's newest state on Monday as peace talks to end a
three-week outburst of ethnic fighting faced delay.
"China's position with regards to the current situation in
South Sudan is very clear," Foreign Minister Wang Yi told a news
conference on the first stop of an African tour in Ethiopia's
capital, Addis Ababa. "First, we call for an immediate cessation
of hostilities and violence."
