As part of its continuing "charm offensive" to get the EU arms embargo lifted, China is now promising that weapons exports would not increase if was lifted.

Urging the resumption of arms sales "as soon as possible," the Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Zhang Qiyue, states: "The lifting of the embargo will not lead to the problem of China importing more weapons," adding, "We hope the EU will make a right decision as soon as possible."

Er… if the lifting of the embargo will not lead to an increase, why do they want it lifted?
