Re: Tracking India's Admission into International Groups

This US Senator, Ed Markey from Massachusetts is one of the most virulently anti India persons in the US. He is obnoxious, hateful, I think a little off his rocker and irrationally against India on every issue, for no apparent reason. Unlike, someone like me, who is also hugely critical of India on ...

If India becomes a full member of NSG, it will be able to attract investments, make purchases etc of nuclear material and equipment, but not be able to use ANY of it for military purposes.
