According to official reports, the humanitarian situation in Sudan's Darfur region has recently deteriorated. Dai has noted that the Darfur issue has a long history and involves complex factors such as intercommunal clashes, resource competition and external interference.
Official statements show that China believes that the top priority right now is to encourage all parties to enforce the Juba Peace Agreement and assist the Sudanese authorities in fulfilling their duty to safeguard civilians.
According to Dai, China “calls on all parties to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law, fulfill their responsibility to protect civilians, curb violence and ensure unimpeded humanitarian assistance in Darfur.”
