Nuclear Trade Body to Consider Ties with India at Annual Meeting

June 24, 2014

An exclusive, multinational nuclear export-control group will consider its ties with India when it meets in Buenos Aires later this week.

A draft agenda of the Nuclear Suppliers Group's yearly meeting, set to take place on Thursday and Friday in the capital of Argentina, states without further elaboration that member states will be "invited to a general discussion on the NSG's relationship with India," Reuters reported.

India is petitioning for membership in the 48-nation group, whose members voluntarily agree to only sell their nuclear products to countries that have signed the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty. Nuclear-armed India has refused to sign the pact, though on Monday it announced it was ratifying the International Atomic Energy Agency's so-called Additional Protocol, which permits heightened foreign monitoring of the country's nonmilitary atomic facilities.

 

Washington welcomed the ratification of the pact, saying it demonstrated another "important step in bringing India into the international nonproliferation mainstream."

While the United Kingdom, the United States and Russia all support Indian NSG membership, other group members, such as China, reportedly have reservations. Admittance to the nuclear trade body requires a consensus vote.
