Israel agrees to pay lip service to not openly screwing the US via technology transfers to likely foes.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer: AP - Washington, D.C.: Israel to consult with U.S. on arms sell
: "WASHINGTON -- Israel has agreed to consult with the U.S. government before attempting to sell weapons technology to China or other nations.
The understanding completed Tuesday 'ends the dispute' and 'fully restores the confidence of the United States,' Israeli Ambassador Daniel Ayalon said.
The Bush administration had complained about Israel's intention to service spare parts for unmanned Harpy aircraft already sold to China.
The administration objected on grounds it would upgrade China's anti-radar aircraft."
