China wishes all parties in Sudan to "properly" resolve their differences through dialogue in order to maintain national peace and stability, a Chinese diplomat said on Friday.

Speaking at a one-day special session of the United Nations Human Rights Council on the political crisis in Sudan, Li Song, charge d'affaires at the Chinese Mission in Geneva, said China has always adhered to the principle of non-interference in internal affairs and believes that the Sudanese people have the wisdom and ability to handle their internal affairs well.

"China supports the Sudanese people in solving the Sudanese issue on their own, and calls on the international community to create a favorable external environment for all parties in Sudan to resolve the issue through dialogue," Li said.

He told the Council that China has always advocated that all parties handle differences in the field of human rights through constructive dialogue and cooperation, since external pressure will only complicate the issue.

"The Human Rights Council should conduct its work impartially and objectively and avoid politicizing human rights issues. The relevant discussions and actions of the Human Rights Council should help the relevant parties in Sudan to conduct dialogue and help Sudan maintain peace and stability, not the other way around," Li said.

The Sudanese army dissolved the power-sharing transitional government and detained civilian Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and his cabinet on October 25.

On Thursday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, head of the Sudanese Armed Forces, to find a political solution to the crisis during a phone call.
