Wassenaar Arrangement decides to admit India as its new member
08 December 2017 Current Affairs: Wassenaar Arrangement (WA) decided to admit India as its new member. 

India's entry into the export control regime would enhance its credentials in the field of non-proliferation despite not being a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The decision was taken at the two-day plenary meeting of the grouping in Vienna. 

The grouping statement that the Wassenaar Arrangement participating states reviewed the progress of a number of current membership applications and agreed at the plenary meeting to admit India. 

India will become the Arrangement's 42nd participating state as soon as the necessary procedural arrangements for joining the WA are completed.

The WA membership is also expected to build up a strong case for India's entry into the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).
