China offered hoards of weapons to Libyan Colonel Moammar Gadhafi’s forces in July, a violation of U.N. sanctions, according to secret diplomatic memos recently made public.

Documents first published by Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail showed that during the last months of Gadhafi’s regime, senior security officers traveled to China and met with three state-affiliated Chinese weapons companies that expressed their willingness to offer their services to Gadhafi forces. Reporters with The Globe and Mail found the documents in the trash in a rich Tripoli neighborhood.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu admitted on Monday that Gadhafi representatives met with a Chinese weapons company in Beijing. But she said that the Chinese regime had not been informed of the talks at the time and no weapons were sold.
