KHARTOUM - China stands ready to help improve the relationship between Sudan and South Sudan, the Chinese ambassador in the Sudanese capital said on Sunday.

"China appreciates the two parties' adherence to the option of peace and urges them to find solutions to the outstanding issues between them through dialogue," Luo Xiaoguang said at a reception to mark the 64th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, which falls on October 1.

"We reiterate China's readiness to play a vital role in enhancing the relations between the two countries," he added.

Sudanese Petroleum Minister Awad Ahmed Al-Jaz conveyed his government's congratulations, saying "today we are celebrating the anniversary of the founding of China and the bilateral ties between Sudan and China, which we present as a model for the peace-loving nations and for friendship and cooperation without intervention in the internal affairs."

Over 500 people, including government officials and diplomats from both countries, attended the reception held at the Friendship Hall in Khartoum.
