China is keen to play a role in ending conflict in Darfur despite criticism from the United States and the European Union that it is too close to the Sudanese government, a top UN envoy said Monday. Jean-Marie Guehenno, the UN undersecretary-general for peacekeeping, said Beijing was playing "a very important and constructive role in the (UN's) Security Council to help bring a consensus" to end the fighting. "China sees how detrimental to Africa the continuation of the conflict in Darfur is," Guehenno told reporters after talks with EU officials.
