  China becomes top arms supplier of Sudan
Dec. 8, 2005 (UPI) — China has become the top supplier of fighter-bombers to Sudan’s Muslim regime, whose attacks on Christian rebels in the south have made Khartoum notorious.

Sudan’s air force recently bought $100 million worth of Shenyang fighter planes, including a dozen supersonic F-7 jets, and also purchased 34 other fighter-bombers from Beijing, Middle East Newsline reported Thursday.

In exchange, Chinese oil companies have become big stakeholders in Sudan’s oil and natural gas fields.The state-owned China National Petroleum Corp., for example, owns 40 percent of Sudan’s largest oil field.

“China rarely attaches any political strings to its assistance to Africa,” said a report from the Washington-based Jamestown Foundation. “This has opened up space for China to deal quite profitably with some of the more heinous regimes on the continent. It is no coincidence, for example, that Sudan and Zimbabwe now play host to a very large Chinese economic presence.”
