India’s application for missile body MTCR ‘received well’: Govt


India’s application to be a member of the Missile Technology Control Regime has been received well, says the external affairs ministry.

“India has an application under submission since June 2015 to be a member of the MTCR. It has been received well and it remains under consideration.”

The ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup said, “We are hopeful that MTCR discussions on this issue will conclude soon. India’s membership of the MTCR and other export control regimes would further strengthen global non-proliferation objectives.”

MTCR is a 34-member informal non-treaty association of governments sharing common interests in the nonproliferation of missiles, unmanned air vehicles, and related technologies.
