China says paying 'great attention' to Japan arms export change

BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry said on Tuesday it was paying "great attention" to Japan's easing of its weapons export restrictions, in Japan's first major overhaul of its arms transfer policy in nearly half a century.

Japan should pursue peaceful development and take more actions that are conducive to regional peace, ministry spokesman Hong Lei told a daily news briefing.
