After failed NSG bid, India joins Missile Technology Control Regime

The MTCR membership will help India buy sophisticated missile tech and boost its JVs with Russia and source drones from the US

New Delhi:
India on Monday joined the multilateral export control group, Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), as a full member, days after its attempt to be part of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) failed thanks to stiff opposition from China and a few other countries.
On Monday, foreign secretary S. Jaishankar signed the document of accession into MTCR in the presence of the ambassadors of France, Netherlands and Luxembourg, in New Delhi, Indian foreign ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

“India has joined the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) this (Monday) morning. The MTCR Point of Contact in Paris has conveyed the decision regarding India’s accession to the regime through the Embassy of France in New Delhi as well as the Embassies of The Netherlands and Luxembourg,” a foreign ministry statement said.

“India would like to thank each of the thirty-four MTCR Partners for their support for India’s membership. We would also like to thank Ambassador Pieter de Klerk of The Netherlands and Robert Steinmetz of Luxembourg, co-chairs of the MTCR, for facilitating India’s accession to the regime. India’s entry into the regime as its thirty-fifth member would be mutually beneficial in the furtherance of international non-proliferation objectives,” the statement said.

MTCR: Top five things to know

» MTCR membership will enable India to buy high-end missile technology and also enhance its joint ventures with Russia.
»MTCR aims at restricting the proliferation of missiles, complete rocket systems, unmanned air vehicles and related technology for those systems capable of carrying a 500 kilogramme payload for at least 300 kilometres, as well as systems intended for the delivery of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
»India’s efforts to get into the MTCR also got a boost after it agreed to join the Hague Code of Conduct, dealing with the ballistic missile non-proliferation arrangement, earlier this month.
»India’s membership had been blocked in 2015 by Italy, which seemed to link it to the standoff over the detention of the Italian marines. With the return of the second marine, Salvatore Girone, to Rome on May 29, the sources said, “Italy is no longer blocking the consensus.”
» China, which stonewalled India’s entry into the 48-nation Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) at the just-concluded Seoul plenary, is not a member of 34-nation MTCR.

In the highly competitive world we have to be proactive and snatch our rights! No use of being a Sanyasi & giving up our rights!!

In India no Sanyasi is giving up their rights; they are turning up all the doors in their lust for power and money !!
