It is but natural for Indian participants in the failed Buenos Aires ministerial of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to focus

 

A month after India was part of the ‘Quad’ discussion on the sidelines of the East Asia Summit in Manila involving Japan, Australia and the U.S., New Delhi hosted foreign ministers of Russia and China this week.

India’s admittance into the Wassenaar Arrangement, a multilateral export control regime, as its 42nd participating member is a big step forward in its quest for formal acceptance as a responsible nuclear power.

 

The 11th Ministerial Conference (henceforth ministerial) of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) begins on December 10 in Buenos Aires.

 

India’s inclusion in the Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) is welcome. India now becomes the 42nd country to join this multilateral export-control regime on conventional weapons and dual-use technologies.
