China urged the International Criminal Court Thursday to drop its arrest warrant for Sudan's leader on war crimes, saying it won't help stabilize the war-scarred Darfur region. "China opposes anything that could disrupt efforts to realize peace in Darfur and in Sudan," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang in a statement posted to the ministry's official Web site. Qin also backed a call by African and Arab countries to have the warrant dropped. The court on Wednesday charged President Omar al-Bashir with war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur - its first action against a sitting head of state.
