Loro Dorta writes for East Asia Forum: In early May, several media outlets reported that a Chinese delegation visited Argentina to discuss a major arms deal. The agreement could be a game changer for Argentina and South America’s arms market. According to reports, the two governments discussed the possibility of selling Argentina Sino–Pakistan JF-17 fighter jets. If the deal goes ahead, this will be the most advanced fighter jet offered by China to the region and could pave the way for future arms deals with other South American countries.
