India admitted into global export control regime Wassenaar Arrangement

Indian membership of the Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Conventional Arms and Dual-Use Goods and Technologies comes more than a year after becoming member of the Missile Technologies Control Regime (MTCR).

There are "very good chances of a positive action" on India's application tomorrow at the Wassenaar Arrangement's plenary session in Vienna, Ryabkov said.

The WA membership is also expected to build up a strong case for India's entry into the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

The statement was put up on the website of the WA.

India's membership in the Wassenaar Arrangement partly hinged on a lack of consensus, with Italy having objected to New Delhi's participation until the two countries repaired their bilateral relationship this year following a multiple-year spat over the fate of two Italian marines who killed two Indian fishermen in 2012.

The Ambassador of France Alexandre Ziegler tweeted his country's congratulations.

"The United States welcome the successful conclusion of the #WassenaarArrangement plenary, which offered #India membership, agreed upon over 80 control list updates, & (and) exchanged views on #proliferation challenges", the USA mission to UN in Vienna tweeted.

Since its civil nuclear deal with the US, India has been trying to get into export control regimes such as the NSG, the MTCR, the Australia Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement that regulate the conventional, nuclear, biological and chemicals weapons and technologies.

In June 2016, China had maintained that it opposes India's entry into the NSG, a group of nations seeking to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons by controlling access to sensitive technology.

Once the non-discriminatory formula would be adopted by the NSG, the cartel should move to the second stage to take up the "country-specific membership issues", argued China.

To be admitted to the Arrangement, states must meet certain criteria, including acquiescence to a range of global nonproliferation treaties, including the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). The guidelines of the organization prohibit its members to enter into nuke ties with the countries that did not sign the NPT.

He also said Russian Federation is trying to develop relations with Pakistan, "without any hidden agenda" and "in no case at India's expense".

China, which has repeatedly blocked New Delhi's bid for membership of the NSG, is not a member of the Wassenaar Arrangement.

Beijing on Thursday reiterated that its position on admitting new members to the NSG remained unchanged.
