There has been extensive coverage and research on the impact of the sales of US and Russia military technology to the rest of the world. US and Russia practically armed their allies during the Cold War.
As Chinese military technology continues to improve and other countries are acquiring their military technology, there should be more policies on how to regulate the sales of Chinese military technology as it has damaging consequences to regional conflicts and international relations.
Apparently, both ISIS and Hamas use Chinese drones during warfare. While some of the drones may not be military surveillance drone and only a civilian-grade drone, it is still troubling that rebel groups are able to get their hands on such technology and use it for military purposes.
Even more troubling is that China is unqualified to become a member of MTCR (Missile Technology Control Regime), the major arms control body for regulating the sale and transfer of unmanned technology, precisely over concerns about its accountability. Hence, China is in a position to sell their drones to the highest bidder, regardless of the impact it might have on other countries.
This issue should be addressed promptly before the world is proliferated with Chinese-made drones.
