Arms sales to China resume – Yaakov Katz

From The Jerusalem Post (link):

Israeli arms developers are once again marketing their wares in China despite the 2004 crisis that developed with the US over a sensitive arms deal, Defense Ministry Director-General Ya’acov Toren revealed on Wednesday.

“The industries have returned to working on defense exports with China and other countries,” Toren told reporters in his first press conference since taking office in September 2005.

“Defense exports were never an unsupervised business, and we require all of the industries who want to sell to submit the plans which we then review and approve according to the set criteria.”
