September 03, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

China said it would provide the United Nations with information on its military spending and arms deals for the first time in more than a decade.

The U.S. and Japan have questioned the pace and amount of China's defense spending.

China will give "basic data of its military expenditures for the latest fiscal year," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The country already announces basic details of its military budget each year, and it was unknown what data it plans to give to the U.N.
