Chinese military: United States, "Defense News" magazine article published on October 10, comments Russia Council military products trade that China is to reduce the purchase of weapons from Russia, the article quoted the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute reports that the next 10 years, China may need to Russian imports of advanced weapons and technologies include: tanker and transport aircraft, including assault weapons and high-performance long-range ship-to-ground missiles.
The article said the U.S. media, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute released a report that China purchased from Russia are reducing the number of arms and weapons procurement is opening the door to international competition, with other countries to build more relationships. The report, entitled "China and Russia's energy and security relationships, hope, disappointment and uncertainty," the report published on October 3, based on a number of Russian and Chinese experts interviewed.
The report stated: "the decline in dependence on Russian weapons and other energy providers to increase the number of means, in China in the Sino-Russian relations have the upper hand." The report said, from 1991 to 2010, China's imports of conventional weapons 90% is supplied by Russia. However, since 2007, China imported from Russia to reduce substantially the number of weapons.
The author of the report, the International Peace Research Institute, arms transfer project team leader Paul Thom Hall said: "Russia is basically willing to provide China with advanced weapons and technology, mainly because it fears that Russian technology and Chinese imitation with Russia on the international market competition competition rather than cooperation in arms trade will increasingly become a real feature. "the report says, the U.S. factor will continue to hamper long-term cooperation between China and Russia.
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute reports that the six factors from Russia to China to get the weapons it wants to provide the ability and willingness: Russia's own level of technology, competition from other suppliers, the quality of Russia's arms exports, Russia and India growing arms trade, the Chinese imitation concerns, China and Russia in the international arms market competition.
Berlin, the industry analyst Peter Barr said: "One view is that we now live in a world different from the two countries signed an agreement in 1996, when the world, this view is reasonable should be noted that although China to the world strategy will reduce the demand for military equipment to Russia, but in view since the 1970s did not happen between the two countries since the major military conflict, their relationship is still strong and important. "
Stockholm International Peace Research Institute reports that: "Although Russia in 2008 and 2009 Joint Committee meeting held on the two countries expressed their willingness to provide air defense systems, fighter aircraft, transport aircraft and submarines, but the two sides meeting in November 2010 did not sign on new orders. "China's arms imports from Russia amount from $ 1.2 billion in 2002 fell to $ 500 million in 2010.
The report notes that the next 10 years, China may still be imported from Russia, at least some of the needs of advanced weapons and technologies, especially including the tanker and transport aircraft, including assault weapons and high-performance long-range ship-to-ground missiles.
