This Close US Ally Is Selling China Billions In Military-Related Equipment

Authored by Mark Curtis via Consortium News,

The UK government has authorized the sale of £2.6-billion worth of military and civilian equipment with potential military use to China in the past three years, government figures show. Last year saw a tripling in exports to China of "dual use" items defined as "civilian goods with a military purpose."” Some £1.6-billion worth were authorized in 2020, compared to £526-million in 2019.

The increase coincided with the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020. The exports have been approved while China is identified by the British government as “an increasing risk to U.K. interests” and "the biggest state-based threat to the U.K.’s economic security."
