China welcomes and supports all kinds of efforts conducive to a peaceful resolution of the Ukraine crisis, said a Foreign Ministry spokesman on Friday.

At a regular press briefing in Beijing, spokesman Lin Jian made the statement in response to a media query regarding the Summit on Peace in Ukraine, which will be held in Switzerland from June 15 to 16.

"China welcomes and supports all efforts for peace. Our position on the Summit on Peace in Ukraine to be held in Switzerland is fair and just and we've been open and clear about our position. China has maintained close communication with Switzerland, Ukraine and other parties on issues related to the summit and encouraged equal participation and fair discussion of all plans at the summit," said Lin.

"The six common understandings by China and Brazil have received positive response from over 100 countries. They reflect the universal expectation of the world and represent the broadest common ground of countries in the world on this issue. We welcome more countries to support and endorse the six common understandings," he said.

Sudan's warring parties have indirect talks brokered by UN

Sudan's warring parties started UN-led indirect talks on Thursday in Geneva, aiming at brokering possible ceasefire, protecting civilians and facilitating humanitarian supports.

At the invitation of UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres's personal envoy, Ramtane Lamamra, delegations from both warring parties, the Sudanese Armed Forces (SAF) and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF), had talks under a proximity format in Geneva. The two sides separately met with Lamamra on Thursday and Friday, and they will not have direct talks with each other.

General Commander of the SAF Abdel Fattah Al-Burhan on Thursday said that the army would not have talks with the RSF, unless they withdraw from all cities they have occupied, while the RSF on Friday said in a statement that they welcome the UN-brokered talks and look forward to constructive achievements and effective mechanisms for ceasefire and civilians protection.

Along with the talks in Geneva, clashes continued in the country. The SAF and the RSF on Friday fired shells at each other in several areas of North Khartoum. The SAF advanced towards Khartoum Oil Refinery occupied by the RSF and had several skirmishes.

In El Fasher, the capital city of Sudan's North Darfur State, the SAF dispatched fighter jets to launch large-scale air strikes on the RSF, while the latter struck several positions of the SAF with heavy artillery. Thousands of civilians were forced to flee their homes as fighting swept through residential areas.

The armed conflict in the country broke out between the SAF and the RSF in the capital city of Khartoum on April 15, 2023, subsequently engulfing other regions of the country, and continues to this day.
