BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese Foreign Ministry has not received any reports of Chinese companies in South Sudan affected by the country's recent conflict in Bentiu, a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

Spokeswoman Hua Chunying made the remarks at a regular press briefing when asked to give information on Chinese companies in South Sudan.

She said China is aware of the news reports on the seizure of Bentiu, an oil hub and capital of Unity State, by anti-governmental forces.

She said China is paying close attention to the situation in South Sudan and has noted that a cease-fire agreement was signed earlier this year following joint efforts by all parties, including The Inter-Governmental Authority on Development.

China hopes both sides of the conflict will earnestly implement the agreement, positively respond to mediation efforts by all sides, and resolve differences through peaceful dialogue, Hua said.

China calls for both sides to put the interests of the nation and the people as the top priority, underscore the country's long-term economic growth and protect important facilities for economic development, Hua added.

She said China is willing to strengthen communication and coordination with all sides and make joint efforts to help restore peace and stability in South Sudan.
