US eager to see India’s NSG application be considered even after Chinese opposition


Washington: The Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) meeting which held at Seul has gained attention from the foreign policy analyst in last few weeks.  China has been continuously opposing India’s entry into NSG .

United State is eager to watch  India's application for NSG membership to come into the 48-nation grouping that has hit a roadblock due to Chinese opposition.

The members  of NSG will continue their meeting in Seoul on Friday.

"We have made clear our desire to see India's application be seriously considered," State Department Spokesman Kohn Kirby told reporters.

The steady support has been provided to India and its members to the NSG before its other 47 member countries, US Kirby said.

"We have made very clear our support of their application, and I have no reason to suspect that it was not discussed at this meeting. But what was discussed in the room and where they came down, I just do not know. I will see what we can do to find out for you, but I do not know how complete an answer I am going to be able to give you," Kirby added.

“China was joined by Austria, Ireland and Brazil among other countries which questioned as to how a country like India which had not signed the Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) can be admitted to the grouping.”, official sources said.
