China Backs Pakistan for NSG membership

New Delhi: In a bid to strategically strengthen Pakistan, China reassured of supporting Islamabad’s bid to be a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) if India gets the nod to join the global elite body. Furthermore, Beijing has also promised to use its veto power if India is incorporated in the group.

Reportedly, a high-powered entourage led by Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain recently visited Pakistan. During their visit, Chinese officials assured that Beijing will use its all-out influence so that Pakistan bags a seat in NSG. An elaborate discussion was held in China on the issue.

The Pakistan delegation underscored the country’s need to get entry into the group to satiate its need to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Pakistan has been rooting for a membership in the NSG so that it can use nuclear technology to generate power for meeting its growing demands.

However, the Pakistani delegation’s China visit came after reports surfaced that a covert diplomatic move was underway to induct Indian into the group.

China has expressed solidarity with Pakistan’s views that if India gets an entry into the high-profile group then it will result in an imbalance in the region/subcontinent.

Pakistan further alleged that giving India a membership in the NSG will be like depriving Islamabad of its just rights.

The NSG monitors all global nuclear issues and has a handle over almost all international nuke trade. The membership of the body facilitates member nations to import technology and nuclear materials from other countries to use them peacefully.

General (Retd) Hamid Gul, former Director General of ISI, has lauded China’s backing to Pakistan for bidding for an NSG membership.

However, all the NSG member nations except China are opposed to giving Pakistan entry into the group.
