China send riot police for a peacekeeping mission in Haiti

Photo here below shows a boy kissing his father, a member of Chinese peacekeeping police, at the International Airport in Beijing, September 17, 2004.

The advance troops of riot police composed of 30 members including four policewomen left for Haiti on Friday, September 17.

At the request of the United Nations, China will send 125 police officers to form a contingent of riot police for a peacekeeping mission in Haiti.


One can't help wondering why the UN Security Council did not ask China to send riot police for peacekeeping mission in Darfur.

China's oil companies are adjacent to Darfur. China gets a lot out of Sudan. What does China do for the Sudanese, in return for exploitation of their land and natural resources?
