MTCR agrees to admit India after PM Modi’s United States visit

Washington: In another victory for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the members of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR)–an international anti-proliferation group–have agreed to admit India, diplomats said.

The decision was taken after PM Modi met United States (US) President Barack Obama in Washington on Tuesday last.

Admission to the MTCR would open the way for the country to buy high-end missile technology.

After taking office, PM Modi has been lobbying successfully with countries like Switzerland and US to gain support for its bid to join the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG)–a club of 48 countries that trade nuclear technology.
