China defends military items found by Colombia on cargo ship

“China’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday that a Chinese cargo ship was carrying legitimate military items when it was stopped in Colombia on its way to Cuba. Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said the items were part of ‘normal military trade’ between China and Cuba and did not violate Chinese law or any of the country’s international obligations. Authorities told The Associated Press the ship’s documentation failed to report the military items. The ship’s captain appeared before a local judge on Tuesday to answer charges of arms trafficking.”
