Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman will be going to China in the near future to discuss the Iranian issue, and are waiting for Beijing to finalize a date for the trip, according to government sources.

The visit, it if materializes, would follow closely on Netanyahu’s recent trip to Moscow, where he tried to drum up Russian support for UN sanctions against Iran.

Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Bank of Israel Governor Stanley Fischer went to China last month to try to persuade the reluctant Chinese to back sanctions.
