Islamabad: China has assured its closest ally Pakistan of support in the country’s bid to become a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) if India is allowed to join the exclusive body, a media report said on Friday.
The assurance was given during the visit of a high-level delegation led by President Mamnoon Hussain to Beijing recently, the Express Tribune.
“The issue was discussed at length and Pakistan highlighted its point of view saying that it has equal right to join the group for fulfilling its requirement for peaceful use of nuclear technology,” the report quoted diplomatic sources as saying.
