KHARTOUM -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi proposed here on Monday China's four-point initiative to promote South Sudan's peace process.

Wang raised the initiative at the "special consultation of Inter-Governmental Authority for Development (IGAD)" with the conflicting parties of South Sudan.

In the initiative, Wang urged the conflicting sides to take into account the realistic and long-term interests of South Sudan people and safeguard the peace and stability in the region.

Both sides should abandon the use of force, carry out the signed agreements and reach comprehensive ceasefire without precondition, so as to create favorable conditions for peace talks,

he said.

Wang urges establishment of transition government in South Sudan as soon as possible so as to speed up peace process, and he calls for greater international efforts to support peace process, stability and development in the country.
