India’s Second Attempt To Enter NSG


New Delhi: India has made another attempt to secure a place in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) after the previous attempt remained unsuccessful.

A special envoy has been appointed to discuss India’s entry into the elite group. Last week India had presented suggestions on participation of NPT countries in the NSG to special envoy Rafael Mariano Grossi.

India’s case is not unique in the manner that China made it appear during the Seoul plenary. In 2008, it was China and 47 other countries that granted India a waiver for nuclear commerce.

In addition, France, Argentina and Brazil had all joined NSG before they became NPT members.
