China: Sustaining conflict and human rights abuses: The flow of arms continues

By Amnesty International, , Index number: ASA 17/030/2006

Over the last twenty years, China has transferred military, security and police equipment to armed forces and law enforcement agencies in countries where these arms are used for persistent and systematic violations of human rights. The routine export of conventional weapons and small arms has been contributing to human rights violations including in brutal armed conflicts. The report also highlights how co-operation between Chinese and European, Russian and US companies raises serious concerns about the risk of China exporting the resulting military and dual-use equipment to armed forces or groups which use such equipment for gross human rights violations.
