China says U.S. has 'no right' to interfere in Russia military cooperation

SHANGHAI/BEIJING (Reuters) - China's decision to buy fighter jets and missile systems from Russia is a normal act of cooperation between sovereign countries and the United States has "no right to interfere", defense ministry spokesman Wu Qian said on Saturday. On Thursday, the U.S. State Department imposed sanctions on China's Equipment Development Department (EED), the branch of the military responsible for weapons procurement, after it engaged in "significant transactions" with Rosoboronexport, Russia's main arms exporter.
