PM's Plane Lands in China

The plane carrying Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and a delegation of Israeli businessmen landed this morning in Shanghai to mark the beginning of a week-long visit intended to tighten relations between Israel and China.

Before his departure on Sunday, Netanyahu said he intended to advance Israeli exports to China and to increase sanctions against Iran's nuclear development program. He refused to answer questions by reporters about the apparent Israeli attacks on Syria over the weekend.
