      China has supplied South Sudan with Chinese-made anti-aircraft weapons to protect its oil fields, according to a news report Thursday.

      South Sudanese troops were given Qianwei-2 anti-aircraft missiles, which though small are equipped with an infrared tracking system and capable of intercepting fighter jets or helicopters at an altitude of 13,000 feet, according to online news site Geeska Africa.

      China supplied the weapons to South Sudan to protect the oil fields and Chinese workers in the turmoil of civil war.
