China says no change in its stand on India's membership to NSG

China says no change in its stand on India's membership to NSG

Since its civil nuclear deal with the US, India has been trying to get into export control regimes such as the NSG, the MTCR, the Australia Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement that regulate the conventional, nuclear, biological and chemicals weapons and technologies.

In a significant development, elite export control regime Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) today chose to admit India as its new member, which is expected to raise New Delhis stature in the field of non-proliferation besides helping it acquire critical technologies.

Reacting to his statement, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said Beijing won't change its mind on India's entry.

India was made the 42nd member of the grouping, at its two-day plenary in Vienna.

"We recognise that at the moment there is no unanimity on Pakistan's application and that the same can not be interlinked with India's", said Ryabkov, after his meeting with Jaishankar.

"There are good chances of a positive action on the Indian application on the Wassenaar Arrangement (which) could be taken tomorrow", he said while interacting with mediapersons at the Russian Embassy here. Through the revised list of items, India also seeks to send a message about its larger commitment to non-proliferation. Without naming anyone, Ryabkov said that unlike other countries that only speak of support, Russian Federation takes the first to help and actions speak more than words.

China, which has repeatedly blocked New Delhi's bid for membership of the NSG, is not a member of the Wassenaar Arrangement.

China is neither the member of the Wassenaar Arrangement nor the MTCR and the Australia Group.

Russia's deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov also clarified on relations with Pakistan and termed it to be without any hidden agenda and certainly not at the India's expense.

In 2016, China led the opposition to a push by the United States to bring India into the NSG which aims to prevent nuclear weapons proliferation by stopping the sale of items that can be used to make nuclear arms.

Last year, India gained entry into the Missile Technologies Control Regime (MTCR), which paved way for it to get critical missile technologies and also export its missiles.

On Pakistan's entry to the NSG, Ryabkov said there is no prospect for any "unanimity" with respect to the Pakistani application.
