PM Modi congratulates Indian contingent, expresses gratitude to Brazil for hosting 'memorable' Olympics
Brazil today said it will work with member countries of Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) to facilitate India's entry in the elite grouping that controls global trade in the atomic field, according to the External Affairs Ministry.
The Prime Minister conveyed to President Temer India's desire and its aspiration to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group, Secretary (East) in the External Affairs Ministry Preeti Saran told reporters while briefing on the meeting.
This assumes significance since NSG is slated to meet in about a month in Vienna.
At the Seoul meet of NSG in June, Brazil did not oppose India's entry into the club, but had called for common criteria for countries that have not signed the Non- Proliferation Treaty.
