US prevents Israeli firms from providing security at 2008 Beijing Olympics
Washington has prevented Israeli companies from taking part in Chinese tenders for providing security at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.
According to the report, Israeli firms will be able to participate only as subcontractors of international companies.
However, Israeli businessmen accompanying Minister of Industry and Trade Ehud Olmert on his visit to China, said that cooperation with international bodies may enable Israeli companies to bypass American security-related limitations on Israeli sales to China. (menareport.com)
