  • China steals a march on Russian arms

    12/17/2013 8:43:53 PM PST · by traumer · 14 replies
    In March 2013, Russian and Chinese media reported that Beijing was acquiring significant quantities of advanced military equipment from Russia. Among the multi-billion dollar systems to be bought by the Chinese military are six Lada-class attack submarines and 35 SU-35 fighter jets. These acquisitions are significant because they are sophisticated systems and it has been more than a decade since China purchased any significant weapon systems from Moscow. After making substantial purchases from Russia from the mid-1990s to the early-2000s, China began to reverse engineer weapons such as the SU-27 multi-role fighter, the NORINCO T-90 tank, and several components of...

    Posted 12/28/05 09:25 China Opposes U.S. Sanctions, Demands Trade Ban Lift By AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, BEIJING China reacted angrily on Dec. 28 to the United States imposing sanctions on six Chinese companies for allegedly supplying Iran with military equipment and technology, demanding the trade bans be lifted. ”We are strongly dissatisfied with and firmly opposed to the U.S. government sanctioning Chinese companies,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. ”The Chinese government has always adopted a serious and responsible attitude on the anti-proliferation issue, and has adopted a series of effective measures to strengthen export management and control.” The U.S....

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 17 - The Bush administration imposed penalties this month against some of China's largest companies for aiding Iran's efforts to improve its ballistic missiles. The move is part of an effort by the White House and American intelligence agencies to identify and slow important elements of Iran's weapons programs.
  • Saddam bribed China with oil deals, CIA finds

    China illegally supplied Saddam Hussein's regime with missile technology and other weaponry and was a major beneficiary of the U.N. oil-for-food program, according to a CIA report. The report by the Iraq Survey Group also stated that China, along with France and Russia, was bribed by Saddam with oil sales and weapons deals into working to end U.N. sanctions. One sale took place in 2001 and involved an intelligence officer in Beijing, Abd al-Wahab, who bought 10 to 20 gyroscopes and 20 accelerometers from a Chinese firm that was not identified by name. The equipment was to be used in...

    The Bush family: Middle Kingdom rainmakersBy Zach Coleman HONG KONG - George Herbert Walker Bush arrived in Beijing 30 years ago as the official United States representative to China with one goal above all else: expanding his buddy list. "My hyper-adrenaline, political instincts tell me that the fun of this job is going to be to try to make more contacts," he wrote in his first diary entry. "And it is my hope that I will be able to meet the next generation of China's leaders - whomever they may be. Yet everyone tells me that that is impossible." Bush...

    For those of you that are following the current action on the Assault Weapons Ban being positioned to sunset, I thought it would be interesting to analyze that fact that Bush imposed (May of 2003) a ban on all products from the Chinese manufacturer Norinco. As most gun collectors know, Norinco manufactures relatively high quality Ak-47 rifles that were once imported into the United States prior to the ban in 1994. (yes, Norinco did produce post ban rifles and they may have been imported after the ban was inacted). At any rate, it appears that even when the ban sunsets,...

    WASHINGTON The United States has imposed sanctions against a Chinese firm for alleged missile technology sales, according to a notice published today in the Federal Register (see GSN, July 30). Last month, the United States determined that the state-owned China North Industries Corp. (Norinco) had engaged in missile technology proliferation activities, according to the notice (see GSN, July 3). Under the sanctions, which take effect today, Norinco will be prohibited from importing items controlled by the Missile Technology Control Regime annex or the Export Administration Act of 1979 and from entering into contracts with Washington relating to such items...

  • Putting China on notice

    During my career in the US State Department, I was one of the handwringers when it came to levying economic sanctions on China, even those mandated by US law. We old China hands would always warn that now is not a good time to antagonize Beijing. Yet that was just to disguise the fact that we never believed there was a good time to annoy the Chinese. As a result, whenever the department got around to recommending economic sanctions against Chinese firms, they were generally of the harmless, slap-on-the-wrist variety. Now that has finally changed, ahead of next weeks summit...

    Chinese Arms Maker Gets Cut The Bush administration has just imposed a two-year ban on imports from Chinese arms maker NORINCO (China North Industries). According to U.S. defense intelligence sources, President Bush imposed the restrictions personally. The move is welcomed in national security and human rights circles but viewed with great displeasure in the boardrooms of Wal-Mart and Kmart. "The China Support Network (CSN) commends the Bush administration in taking this strong measure in imposing stiff economic sanctions on PLA-controlled NORINCO," stated CSN spokesman David Chu. CSN is an affiliation of human rights and national security experts who advocate a...
