WASHINGTON — A Defense Department report has identified Sudan as the second leading military client of China.
The report listed Pakistan and Sudan as the two top military customers of Beijing. They said Sudan received a significant portion of the nearly $7 billion worth of Chinese defense exports from 2003 through 2007.
"Between 2004 and 2006, China made up an average of 90 percent of small arms sales to Sudan," the report, titled "Military Power of the People's Republic of China 2009," said.
