China will encourage more companies to invest in South Sudan and called on the country to create a better environment for investment and protect the safety of Chinese employees and their property, Vice-Premier Li Keqiang told visiting South Sudan President Salva Kiir Mayardit on Wednesday.

Kiir arrived in China on Monday as violence between the world's newest nation and Sudan intensified over the unresolved issues of oil revenues and their disputed border. Kiir cancelled a two-day visit to Shanghai, according to the foreign ministry, without elaborating on the reason.

Li said China is ready to support South Sudan on issues concerning each other's core interests and major concerns. China will provide aid to the country to help its people, Li said.
