Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar left for Seoul, South Korea on Wednesday ahead of the Nuclear Suppliers Group plenary meeting which is scheduled to be held on Thursday.
India’s entry to NSG is expected to be discussed during the meeting. “China to play a constructive role in the discussions on India’s NSG membership,” a Foreign Ministry spokesperson told PTI.
“Suppliers Group members had three rounds of unofficial discussions on India and Pakistan’s membership in the grouping,” a Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.
China on Monday had said that it was unlikely that issue of India’s entry to NSG would be discussed during the Seoul meeting.
However, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj had said that China was not opposing India’s entry but was only talking about procedure involved.
