The Los Angeles Times published a good analysis on 20 February 2014 titled "Even China Has Second Thoughts on South Sudan after Violence" by Robyn Dixon. The article quotes China's ambassador to South Sudan, Ma Qiang, as saying that everything has changed, "so everything is on hold." This includes a new airport for Juba that a Chinese company was scheduled to build. Ambassador Ma added that Beijing's legendary patience with high-risk environments has been tested.
