  • Russian relations with China and Pakistan are valuable and not to the detriment of India's interests says Sergei Ryabkov

Russia, France, Germany and the United States have backed India's entry into the Wassenaar Arrangement.

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.

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.

The 41-member Wassenaar Arrangement is an important export control regime for conventional arms and dual-use technologies.

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.

Russia has said it will raise the issue of India's Nuclear Supplier Group membership with China during the upcoming Russia-India-China Foreign Ministers' meeting in New Delhi on December 11.

Jaishankar and Ryabkov led the diplomats of India and Russian Federation respectively for the foreign office consultation in New Delhi. The positive action could be taken tomorrow, fingers crossed.

According to a media report, Russia, France, Germany and the United States had supported India's bid to the group, where China is not a member.

India has found an ally in Russian Federation, who has been speaking to China at "all levels" to include India in the Nuclear Supplies Group (NSG).

In the plenary session, the WA reaffirmed its strong support for robust export controls on a global basis as an important tool for ensuring worldwide peace and stability.

India already enjoys most of the benefits of membership under a 2008 exemption to NSG rules granted to support its nuclear cooperation deal with Washington.

"The issue of India's membership has been more politicised than anything else and it is an unfortunate development". China has favoured a criteria-based approach for expansion of the 48-member group, which controls global nuclear commerce.

Last year, India gained entry into the Missile Technologies Control Regime (MTCR), which paved way for it to get critical missile technologies and also export its missiles.

On Pakistan's entry to the NSG, Ryabkov said there is no prospect for any "unanimity" with respect to the Pakistani application.
