China Is Complict In The Darfur Genocide

By Eric Reeves, Sudan Tribune, Sudan, Sunday 11 February 2007-

LEFT CIVILIANS IN DARFUR AT RISK
•China abstained from UN Security Council Resolution 1706 (August 2006), compromising international support for a critically needed peace support operation in Darfur

SUPPORTED THE KHARTOUM REGIME
•China has repeatedly and uncritically supported claims of national sovereignty by Khartoum, emboldening the regime in its defiance of the UN and international community

IGNORED ATROCITIES THROUGHOUT SUDAN
•In pursuit of Sudan’s oil riches, China has for many years ignored massive human rights abuses and atrocity crimes by the Khartoum regime throughout Sudan

SUPPLIED THE WEAPONS
•China has been Khartoum’s leading weapons supplier over the past decade and more; many of these weapons have been used in Darfur

GAVE THE NOD TO GENOCIDE
•China has sent the diplomatic signals which, in their tepid nature, convince Khartoum it can complete its genocidal counter-insurgency war in Darfur without serious consequences
