India In Advanced Stage Of Joining Wassenaar Arrangement

Even as Beijing is persistently blocking New Delhi's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group, the Wassenaar Arrangement another multilateral export control regime seems set to open up its doors for India.

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.

Ryabkov said on Wednesday Russia was in touch with China over India's application for New Delhi's entry into the NSG. China has favoured a criteria-based approach for expansion of the 48-member group, which controls worldwide nuclear commerce.

India already enjoys most of the benefits of membership under a 2008 exemption to NSG rules granted to support its nuclear cooperation deal with Washington. 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 blocked New Delhi's plea for admission into the NSG, is not a member of the Wassenaar Arrangement. "In this circumstance if we agree for the above-mentioned applications, it will have two consequences, that is to recognise the nuclear weapons status of the Non-NPT countries".

"We recognize that at the moment there is no unanimity regarding Pakistan's application and that it can not be interlinked with India's", Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister told reporters in New Delhi. "First is to find a non-discriminatory solution that applies to all non-NPT (Nuclear Proliferation Treaty) contracting countries and then, on this basis, discuss the application of the non-NPT contracting countries", Geng said. "Secondly, it will cause other than nuclear weapons free countries to follow suit not to sign CSA with IAEA", he said. At the same time they will exchange views on global issues of common concern.
