China denies reports of fighter jet sales

Chinese ambassador Liu Guijin to South Africa denied reports of fighter jet sales to Zimbabwe. According to him, it was totally groundless for the report that Zimbabwe has made order to buy 240 million US $ worth of Chinese made fighter jets. Liu Guijin said that he had immediately contacted with Chinese ambassador to Zimbabwe on the issue shortly after he had read the report. "We find that the report is not true and it is baseless," he said. The Chinese ambassador said that the Chinese government already consulted the matter with the Zimbabwean government.
