Islamabad: Amid Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s efforts to get the membership of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), Pakistan on Monday claimed it had stronger credentials than India to join the group.

“If the group forms uniform criteria for non–Nuclear Proliferation Treaty (NPT) states to join it, then Pakistan has stronger credentials for its membership than India,” said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz.

“Pakistan has very bright chances of getting the NSG membership based on merit,” claimed Aziz.

  • Pakistan has expressed hope owing to its efforts and strong credentials that if India manages to gain entry into the 48-nation club, Pakistan will also not be left behind.
