The five largest suppliers of major conventional weapons in 2006–10 were the United States, Russia, Germany, France and the United Kingdom. India replaced China as the largest recipient, followed by South Korea, Pakistan and Greece. India and Pakistan have imported large quantities of weapons to counter external security threats. Internal security challenges are currently the main focus for Pakistan and are of concern in India. When making decisions on licences for arms exports to Israel, Georgia and Russia, members of the European Union have made different interpretations of the common criteria relating to conflict prevention that are intended to harmonize export decisions.
