China is not protesting India's entry into NSG, clarifies Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday clarified that China is not protesting India's entry into Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

Addressing a press conference, Sushma Swaraj said,"China is not protesting membership of India in NSG, it is only talking of criteria procedure."

Talking about Pakistan's entry into NBSG, Sushma Swaraj said, "India won't protest entry of any nation into NSG; would want application be considered based on merits."

"Hopefully, we'll able to convince China as well, I'm myself in contact with 23 nations, 1 or 2 raised concern but think consensus is there," Sushma Swaraj said.

"We are trying to ensure that India becomes a member of NSG by the end of this year itself," Sushma Swaraj added.
