(JTA) - Israel resumed arms sales to China after resolving a dispute on the matter with the United States.
Yaakov Toren, director general of Israel's Defense Ministry, announced the resumption of sales March 1, according to Jane's Defence Weekly. Israel had suspended the sales after signing an agreement last August allowing U.S. officials to review Israeli arms sales. The United States had suspended its strategic dialogue with Israel because of sales of parts that the Pentagon said could compromise any U.S. action in defense of Taiwan. The strategic dialogue resumed in December, after three years.
