"That's not true," China's vice-minister for Foreign Affairs Liu Zhenmin told PTI when asked whether China was blocking India's entry to the NSG. "I think membership of the NSG is not a new issue. It has been an issue for many years. This should be sorted out together with the members of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)."
Earlier, US sources who work with the NSG claimed that China and Pakistan are closely coordinating their strategy against India's entry into the group. India and Pakistan are both seeking admission into the NSG. According to sources, the Chinese government assured Pakistan that either both or none of them will join the group.
The NSG is a group of 48 nuclear supplier countries and was established in 1975 to control the export and re-transfer of materials used in the production of nuclear weapons.
