Juba, Fri, 09 Dec 2011 ANI

Juba, Dec 9(ANI): China has sent a special envoy to break a deadlock over access and distribution of oil between Sudan and South Sudan.


South Sudan's Minister of Petroleum and Mining Stephen Dhieu Dau said China's senior most diplomat, Liu Guijin, arrived in national Juba after Beijing called on Sudan and South Sudan to resolve the issue through "friendly consultations".


China is a Sudan's important customer and investor in oil since it owns a stake in two pipelines running through Sudan.


"They are concerned as investors about the negotiations, so he came to listen to exactly why the two parties have not been able to reach an agreement," Dau said.


He added that Liu had said China did not a "worst-case scenario" of a shutdown of the oil flow.


South Sudan gained independence from Sudan in July following a 2005 peace treaty that ended five decade war between the both sides.


The economic future of the two countries, however, remains intertwined because South Sudan, which houses oil reserves, must pump it through two pipelines that run through Sudan. (ANI)
