In another sign of the growing ties between Israel and China, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz will make a historic visit to Beijing next week for high-level talks with the Chinese defense establishment.

Gantz will leave Israel Saturday night. He will be the guest of Chief of General Staff of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) Gen. Chen Bingde who visited Israel last August. It was the first time that a Chinese military chief visited Israel.

During the trip, Gantz will meet with senior Chinese military officers and visit a number of bases. The visit was approved by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Israel has also updated the United States.
