China to Give Israel a Rocket

China is prepared to provide a rocket to launch an Israeli-built space satellite, the deputy head of the Chinese military industries said during a visit here Monday.

He leads a high-level delegation sent from Beijing to sign a commercial and economic agreement with Israel.

The delegation, which includes senior officials of China’s Ministry of National Planning, has had several meetings with local industrialists and leaders of the Israeli Chamber of Commerce.

They were reported to be interested in Israeli advances in agricultural irrigation.
