KOLKATA: China on Friday sought to dispel the view that it was against India's entry into the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).
"The notion that China is against India's entry into NSG is not right. India and China are working together in this regard," Consul General of China in Kolkata, Zhanwu Ma said.
"Entry of any country into the Nuclear Suppliers Group needs certain procedures which are to be followed. It is not that simple," Ma told reporters here.
Asked about China's stand on Indo-Pak relations, he said his country was neutral.
"China is very friendly towards India. Some people do not seem to believe so. Of course, we have differences. But the shared interests outweigh the differences," the Chinese Consul General said, adding the business relations between the two countries were mutually beneficial.
"So far India's relation with Pakistan is concerned, China's position is neutral. India and Pakistan should settle the impasse via negotiations only," he added.
True they are truly against India''s entry and no matter what we do they would simply block it again. Time to understand this and act accordingly.
The envoy''s response ''touched millions of hearts in India'' .. why can''t we do such diplomacy? .... i.e. be polite and concerned on the face and then stab on the back :)
true, China is injecting to make others believe they are in favour
talk different and walk different. .. will see in next meeting soon..
One boycott call of Chinese goods has compelled Dragon perhaps to change her tone & attitude.However she has to prove this in next NSG meeting.
No no na, we won''t buy Chinese goods unless we are officially informed about our NSG membership confirmation and You Pakistani brothers declared terrorist organization.
The Chinese are making idiots and morons out of the Indian government. Let us hope New Delhi gets realistic and is not be fooled by the Chinese hypocrisy as usual.
