|Explanation of Vote by Ambassador Wang Min after Adoption of Security Council Resolution on UNAMID|
China has consistently supported the peace process in Darfur, the Sudan, and we hope for an early attainment of peace, prosperity and development in Darfur. China maintains that the issue of Darfur should be addressed through the dual-track strategy, with equal emphasis on peacekeeping deployment and the political process. We support the renewal of the mandate of the African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) in order to continue to implement the Security Council mandate.
The African Union (AU) is an important partner of the United Nations in addressing questions related to the Sudan. The AU’s position on the Darfur political process merits close attention. China supports UNAMID playing an important role in supporting the political process in Darfur.
