The Israeli Foreign Minister, Shimon Peres, angered his colleagues with a call for a halt to junkets to China, AFP reports from Jerusalem.

Mr Peres sent a letter to the Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin, asking him 'to restrain the flow of ministers travelling to China'. The rush to Peking was 'counter-productive', Mr Peres said, and asked that his ministry co-ordinate visits.
