BOLTON TELLS NETANYAHU OF U.S. CONCERN WITH CHINESE PRESENCE AT HAIFA PORT

National Security Adviser John Bolton raised US concerns on Sunday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over China's creeping role in Israel's critical infrastructure, particularly its upcoming management of Haifa Port, a frequent dock for the US Sixth Fleet.

White House officials confirmed to The Jerusalem Post that Bolton raised the Haifa matter. The Post exclusively reported last month that the US Navy might change its longstanding operations there once the Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG) – a company in which the Chinese government has a majority stake – takes over the city's civilian port in 2021.
