Granting India nuclear suppliers group membership to impact regional peace: Pakistan

307

Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday said that creating exception to grant India membership of Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) would adversely impact the non-proliferation regime and regional peace and stability, as it demanded an equitable, non-discriminatory approach for admitting new members.

Addressing the weekly press briefing in Islamabad, Foreign Office (FO) spokesman Qazi Khalilullah said that grant of exclusive NSG membership to India as an exception, on account of political and commercial considerations, would adversely affect the credibility of non-proliferation regime.
