Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday that India’s entry into elite nuclear groups in the recent past has reaffirmed the country’s strict non-proliferation commitments.

His remarks comes a day after India became a member of the ‘Australia Group’ (AG), an important non-proliferation regime which seeks to ensure that exports do not contribute to the development of chemical or biological weapons. READ MORE

“I thank Australia and other members of the Australia Group for export control for supporting India’s entry in it,” PM Modi tweeted. He said over the last two years, India’s membership of the MTCR, Wassenaar Arrangement and Australia Group reaffirmed the country’s “strong non-proliferation credentials also our commitment to global peace and security”.

After the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) and the Wassenaar Arrangement (WA), the membership in another of the four major export control regimes is expected to give India a boost in its bid to secure a berth in the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

    What ever ur government may be. But this opposition is useless. Today inflation so high ( all vegetables are high priced when compared to previous year this season). Oil prices so inflated. But why no street show by opposition? U PM very lucky to have such an inefficient opposition. Ur government did not change anything of my life or of my friend. One thing changed we have to make que sometimes and at somewhere for demonitisation or ADHAR linked incovenience. Entering to this group good but give some credit to previous government as they started the process. In reality which item rates come down after ur government came to power. If more earning then to where these money going.U r master in marketing but in performance nothing special.
