China Finally Takes Action in Sudan

From the April 12th New York Times - In response to cries from Hollywood (of all things - Mia Farrow and Steven Spielberg), China sent a high-ranking envoy to Sudan to push the government to accept a U.N. Peacekeeping force.

Because of China’s extensive economic interests in Sudan, leaders in Beijing are in a unique - indeed unrivaled - position to persuade Sudan to consent immediately to a true and robust U.N. operation in Darfur.

Beijing is also the host of the 2008 Summer Olympics, an event that stands for peace and brotherhood. As the Games approach, advocates for security in Darfur have an extraordinary opportunity to reach out to the Chinese government, in its role as host, to urge Beijing’s leaders to use their considerable influence with Sudan.
