Asia laps up lax Israeli weapons rules

Por • 3 ago, 2013 • Category: Política

Firms such as Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Elbit Systems are operating in the Indian defense market very successfully. The Indian military establishment is currently using 100 Searcher and 50 Heron UAVs, both manufactured by Israeli defense firms. Israeli-made Phalcon Airborne Warning and Control Systems (AWACS), which was denied to China, are also being used by Indian armed forces. Israel has carved its niche in India by supplying some of the most sought-after weapons systems with the exception of bigger platforms such as aircraft. Recently, both the countries have also discussed to intensify their cooperation in joint weapons development, involving Israeli firms and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). Most importantly, the rapid warming of ties between Israel and China is likely to revive their military ties, if not sooner but later. This is one market which Israel would like to secure again like their past experience during the 80s, 90s and 2000. Moreover, with the visible declining role of the US in the Middle East, who vetoed Israeli arms sales to China, Israel can use this opportunity to renew its arms sales to Beijing.
