India’s NSG bid hits the China wall

India's NSG bid hits roadbloack. (Business Standard)

The plenary meeting of the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) ended in Seoul on Friday with no decision on India’s membership bid as divisions persisted over admitting non- Nuclear Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT) members with China leading the opposition to it.

China maintained the stand that India’s candidature cannot be taken into consideration because it has not signed the NPT. It was backed by nearly 10 other countries, effectively whittling away India’s bid although it had the strong backing of the US, the UK, France and a majority of countries in the nuclear trading group.

Meanwhile, Switzerland also took a U-turn on its stand and joined the group of countries that are opposing India’s entry into the elite nuclear group.

Wang, Director General of China’s Department of Arms Control said “if exceptions are allowed here or there on the question of NPT, the international non-proliferation will collapse altogether”.

Asked about reports that Beijing was blocking India’s membership, he said the NSG has so far not agreed to any agenda item on participation of non-NPT countries. Therefore, there was no point of China supporting or opposing India’s membership.

The anti-India stand taken by China again today clearly shows that Chinese President Xi Jinping has not responded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s urgings in Tashkent on Thursday that Beijing should support India’s case.

Seeking China’s support for India’s membership, Modi had urged Xi to make a “fair and objective” assessment of India’s application which is before the Seoul plenary as the two leaders met on the sidelines of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit.
