All parties concerned should make positive contributions to the solution to the Darfur issue instead of doing the opposite, Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi said Saturday.
China hopes to see an early solution to the Darfur issue through dialogue and peace talks, said Yang at a press conference on the sidelines of the annual session of the National People's Congress, or the parliament.
"On the issue of Darfur, our position has always been to promote dialogue and peace talks," he said.
"We hope to see continued progress on both the deployment of peacekeeping forces and political dialogue," said Yang.
