India most likely to become member of Wassenaar Arrangement, claims Russian leader
In a statement that clearly reflects the stature of India in international community, Russia expressed confidence that India is likely to get the membership of the Wassenaar arrangement.
It need be mentioned that Wassenaar arrangement is one of the key export control regimes that deals with non-proliferation.
The plenary session of the group members is set on Thursday.
Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergey Ryabkov also clarified on relations with Pakistan and termed it to be without any hidden agenda and certainly not at the India’s expense.
The two-day plenary session of the 41-member club commenced on Wednesday.
Ryabkov said the issue of India’s membership to the nuclear suppliers group (NSG), another major non-proliferation group, has been “politicised”, which, he termed, “unfortunate” and noted that New Delhi’s application should viewed on merit.>
