No country can put itself opposite NPT: China 21.7.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
Amid India's assertion that it will not sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) to gain entry into NSG, an adamant China on Thursday said "no country should or can put itself opposite the NPT". "We have repeatedly stated our position on the accession of non-NPT countries into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG)," Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lu Kang said here, reacting to External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj's statement in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday that India will not sign the NPT. "It is worth mentioning that China does not make the rules for how to become new members of the group. The international community has forged a consensus long ago that the NPT is the cornerstone of the international non-proliferation regime. No country should or can put itself opposite to the NPT," Lu said. Swaraj had said India is engaging with China to iron out differences after Beijing created "procedural hurdles" for its entry into the 48-member NSG but made it clear that government will never ink NPT, ...

India will continue to engage China on NSG: govt 20.7.2016 deccanherald.com
India will continue to seek China's support to its bid to enter the Nuclear Suppliers Group, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj told the Lok Sabha on Wednesday. She also reaffirmed that India would never sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, but would continue its diplomatic efforts to enter the NSG - a cartel to govern the global nuclear commerce. Sushma on Wednesday told the Lok Sabha that the NSG had not been able to decide on India's plea during its annual plenary in Seoul last month, because China raised certain "procedural hurdles". She, however, added that notwithstanding China's position against admission of India into the NSG, New Delhi would continue with its engagement with the communist country and try to obtain its support for securing the membership of the 48-nation cartel. "Only because they (China) did not agree with us (on the NSG issue) once, it would not be appropriate to presume that they would never agree with us," she said. The minister was replying to a supplementary ...

India-US ties: Matrix reloaded 17.7.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It takes two to tango. In the context of India-US relations, increasing convergence in the strategic perspectives of India and the US, and a shared desire to provide global leadership on issues of shared interest are creating one of the most enduring symphonies in global partnership between the two key democracies. Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the US has simply ensured that this relationship is ever-evolving and increasingly multifaceted. It is punched with long and deep engagement, and loaded with opportunities in the economic space. Call it sheer politics or business as usual, the fact is that this tango swung by a sustained American outreach has become an imperative of sorts for the two democracies. A resurgent Indian economy riding on a strong track of economic reforms and liberalisation is strongly poised to be the new engine of global growth. The Modi government has approved up to 100 % foreign direct investment in defence and aviation and up to 74% in pharma. Based on suggestions by ...

NPT not a requirement for NSG but adherence is a factor:Expert 13.7.2016 deccanherald.com
Membership of NPT is not a requirement for joining the NSG, but adherence to its rules is a factor, a US think-tank expert has said, weeks after the 48-nation grouping could not decide on Indias membership bid due to opposition from China. "Part of the problem is that unlike all current Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) members, India is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and it has not subjected its nuclear activities to any multilateral restraints," Mark Hibbs, senior associate, Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said in an op-ed published in Nuclear Intelligence Weekly. One way out of this dilemma would be for India to meet specific criteria or approach certain benchmarks as a condition for membership, Hibbs observed. "NPT membership is not a requirement for membership in the NSG, but adherence is a factor in INFCIRC/539, and many participants would favor India making binding legal commitments — including to NPT Articles I and VI and to ...
