‘China-Pak N-deal needs NSG nod’

The US has sought more info from China on its agreement to supply two nuclear reactors to Pakistan.



Washington: The US has sought more information from China on its agreement to supply two nuclear reactors to Pakistan, saying the deal would need an agreement of the Nuclear Suppliers Group.

"We as a first step are looking for more information from China as to what it is potentially proposing," State Department spokesman P J Crowley told reporters at his daily press briefing.

He was responding to a question on last week`s meeting of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) in New Zealand, wherein China informed the group about its decision to supply two additional nuclear power plants to Pakistan.

"We did raise the issue during last week`s Nuclear Suppliers Group. We continue to seek information from China regarding its future plans," Crowley said.

He said there was no unanimous consensus at the meeting of the NSG, which operates by consensus.

"We have a view that this initiative as it goes forward would need the agreement of the Nuclear Suppliers Group," Crowley said.
