‘Outlier’ China is a hurdle to India’s entry to NSG
Outlier China is a hurdle to India’s entry to NSG China is acting as the biggest hurdle in India’s entry to the Nuclear Supplier Group (NSG) because of its argument that all non-NPT nations, including Pakistan, should be held at par. Recently, the United States hit out at China for blocking India’s entry into the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group by describing it as an ‘outlier’.

“Clearly there is one outlier that needs to be addressed and that is China,” Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, Nisha Desai Biswal told PTI in an interview. “The (US) President (Barack Obama) has been very clear and unequivocal that he believes that India has met the criteria for NSG and that the United States supports India’s entry… that India is ready and India should be brought into the NSG,” Biswal said.

"We believe we have made substantial progress on that and as we hand the baton over to the next administration the path forward will be found for that,” she said. Reiterating that India not becoming a NSG member is ‘disappointing’, Biswal said the Obama Administration is “very very gratified to see India’s entry into the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR)”.
