India will continue to engage China in order to obtain support for its inclusion in the Nuclear Suppliers Group, External Affairs of India, Sushma Swaraj said in the Parliament.
"If someone does not agree to something once, it doesn't mean that he will never agree to it forever. We are continuing in our efforts to engage China on this issue," External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said in Parliament.
Sushma Swaraj was speaking in the Lower House of Parliament, Lok Sabha, in response to queries from opposition party members on the status of India's bid for membership of the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group.
The External Affairs Minister refuted the accusation of the opposition parties that India mishandled its bid for membership in the the Nuclear Suppliers Group.
At the Nuclear Suppliers Group Plenary meeting in June, China led a block of nations that opposed India's membership bid since India has not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
