Israel apologized to the United States over its arms sales to China. “If things were done that were unacceptable, then we are sorry, but these things were done in the utmost innocence,” Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom told Israel Radio on Sunday, referring to Harpy attack drones sold to China in what the Pentagon deemed a violation of its export limitations on the Jewish state. “The United States is our biggest ally and nothing was done with the intention of harming U.S. interests.”
