Will block India's NSG entry: China

Weeks before the upcoming meeting of the Nuclear Suppliers Group in Switzerland next month, China sent out a signal again that it would continue to block India's entry into the elite club. Though the Obama administration had lent its weight behind India's claim, China stood rigid.Now, it wants to make it difficult for the Trump administration to back India.

Beijing continues to stick to its stand that nations like India that have not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, can't join the NSG unless rules are changed. “China's position on the non-NPT members' participation in NSG has not changed,“ foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying has said.
