Can China Save South Sudan

World Politics Review published on 11 July 2016 a commentary titled "A Reluctant China May Be the Last Hope for South Sudan" by Richard Gowan, associate fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations.

The author notes China's extensive oil interests in Sudan and that China has assigned a combat battalion to UNMISS. Two Chinese peacekeepers were killed in the most recent outbreak of violence in Juba. The author comments on the lack of interest in intervening in South Sudan by other traditional parties and suggests that China may be South Sudan's last hope for a greater role in the crisis.
