Talks underway for India's entry into Wassenaar Arrangement

India In Advanced Stage Of Joining Wassenaar Arrangement

"Wassenaar Arrangement participating states reviewed the progress of a number of current membership applications and agreed at the plenary meeting to admit India which will become the Arrangements 42nd participating state as soon as the necessary procedural arrangements for joining the WA are completed", the grouping said in a statement. "We make this point in the contacts with the Chinese at different levels, and India should be confident of Russia's assistance".

After joining Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) past year, India is set to become a member of another multilateral export control regime, Wassenaar Arrangement (WA), after the participating states agreed on the country's bid for the entry on Thursday.

The two-day plenary session of the 41-member club commenced today.

"If everything goes as expected".

India has been eyeing membership of all leading export control regimes including the Nuclear Suppliers Group, the Wassenaar Arrangement and the Australia Group.

Ryabkov, who spoke in New Delhi, also said India's case can not be compared to Pakistan's.

A spokeswoman for Christie's said it did not comment on the identities of any buyer or seller without their permission. However, Prince Bader attended King Saud University in Riyadh around the same time or along with Prince Mohammed.

"We have discussed India's prospective NSG membership during our exchanges". Without naming anyone, Ryabkov said that unlike other countries that only speak of support, Russian Federation takes the first to help and actions speak more than words.

The United States, which has a nuclear cooperation deal with India, considers it a nuclear power that plays by the rules and is not a proliferator, and wants to bring Asia's third largest economy into the 48-member group.

China, which has repeatedly blocked New Delhi's bid for membership of the NSG, is not a member of the Wassenaar Arrangement. India is already a member of the Missile Control Technology Regime (MTCR).

Yesterday, Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said India was likely to get the membership of the grouping in the ongoing plenary session.

Taking a dig at the United States for not pushing China to remove its objections to India's membership at the NSG as Russian Federation had, Mr. Ryabkov said, "Unlike some other countries that only speak of support, Russian Federation takes actual steps to help and actions speak more than words..."

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