Israel to bar Myan­mar mil­i­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tives from arms ex­pos

Mizzima Business Weekly - - NEW ROUNDUPS -

The Is­raeli gov­ern­ment will bar mil­i­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Myan­mar from at­tend­ing arms ex­po­si­tions held in Israel as long as Myan­mar re­mains un­der an in­ter­na­tional arms em­bargo, Haaretz re­ported quot­ing the Is­raeli For­eign Min­istry.

The de­ci­sion fol­lowed a Haaretz re­port that army of­fi­cers from Myan­mar had at­tended the Israel De­fence and Home­land Se­cu­rity expo in Tel Aviv last month. From now on, the min­istry said, re­quests for visas to at­tend arms ex­po­si­tions com­ing from the na­tion­als of coun­tries to which Israel re­fuses to sell arms will be re­jected.

Last month, Haaretz also re­ported that the of­fi­cial vis­i­tors to the ISDEF expo in Tel Aviv in­cluded mil­i­tary rep­re­sen­ta­tives from sev­eral coun­tries that don’t have of­fi­cial re­la­tions with Israel.
