The flow of Chinese venture capital shows no signs of letting up. To help bring Israeli and Chinese companies together, a number of joint business events are now held regularly, and the mutual interest in research has also spilled over into academic cooperation. Two years later, the University of Haifa announced plans to build a joint laboratory at East China Normal University in Shanghai to research ecology, data, biomedicine, and neurobiology; all funding was provided by the Chinese government.
Chinese government-funded Confucius Institutes—one of the major conduits of pro-Beijing information and propaganda around the world—now operate at both the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University. Daniel Galily, an Israeli expatriate who has lectured in business at Beijing Geely University, sees a perfect complementarity at work in this growing meeting of Israeli and Chinese minds: The educational system in China places great emphasis on discipline and obedience to superiors, while the Israeli educational system and the Israeli army encourage students and soldiers to think about new ideas, and to solve problems in situations of uncertainty.
Thus do the Chinese integrate Israeli creativity and innovation into their business enterprises while Israeli start-ups and entrepreneurs learn from their Chinese partners about long-term horizons and workforce organization. The arrangement may not be perfectly symmetrical, but few are pausing to contemplate its potential imbalances—a judgment that can be made about more than one aspect of this marriage.

China has taken on a staggering number of infrastructure projects around the world in recent years, and Israel is one of its important venues. For the Ashdod project also forms part of the vast overseas-development plan unveiled by Xi at the Boao Forum for Asia in March: It sees the Jewish state as an important link in the even larger China-dominated trading chain mentioned earlier: As a partner in construction projects, China brings big advantages: Where Israel occupies a unique place is in the pursuit of the third resource: Petrochemicals, consumer markets, and advanced technology: And China clearly views Israel as an element in that broader policy—a policy that takes advantage of the great-power vacuum left by the U.
Right now, unlike Russia in Syria, Beijing has tried largely to steer clear of involvement in regional conflicts—let alone acting as mediator or honest broker. Meanwhile, closer involvement with China seems to offer Israel the promise of enhanced security for its own regional activities. The history here is instructive. The deal did not involve transfer of any American technology. Israel was forced to back down, and the cost was heavy: Israel had to pay a large penalty for reneging on the transaction, and its fledgling relations with China turned sour.
The Harpy is a drone aircraft, with an impressive range of more than miles, that seeks out and destroys radar installations. At the time, American officials made no protest since the drones did not incorporate U. But in the George W. Bush administration did object to a deal that would add new components to the Harpy system. Israel had described the new components as spare parts.
As punishment, the U. Nor, Beijing lectured the Americans without mentioning them by name, did such cooperation harm the interests of other countries.

The stories have left me with a deep impression. I look forward to my upcoming state visit to Pakistan. The Pressler Amendment in suspended all American military assistance and any new economic aid amidst concerns that Pakistan was attempting to develop a nuclear weapon. This belief was further strengthened as India had developed a nuclear weapon without significant American opposition, and Pakistan felt obligated to do the same.

China has recently pledged to invest nearly 43 billion US dollars.
Li KeqiangPremier of the People's Republic of China  In the past, China has played a major role in the development of Pakistan's nuclear infrastructure, especially when increasingly stringent export controls in Western countries made it difficult for Pakistan to acquire plutonium and uranium enriching equipment from elsewhere such as the Chinese help in building the Khushab reactor, which plays a key role in Pakistan's production of plutonium.
A subsidiary of the China National Nuclear Corporation contributed in Pakistan's efforts to expand its uranium enrichment capabilities by providing 5, custom made ring magnets, which are a key component of the bearings that facilitate the high-speed rotation of centrifuges.
The book claims that "in MarchPrime Minister Indira Gandhi signed off on the Israeli-led operation bringing India, Pakistan and Israel to within a hair's breadth of a nuclear conflagration". It said, "Israeli interest in destroying Pakistan's Kahuta reactor to scuttle the 'Islamic bomb' was blocked by India's refusal to grant landing and refuelling rights to Israeli warplanes in Israel, on its part wanted this to be a joint Indian-Israeli strike to avoid being solely held responsible.
