NEW DELHI: Indian Foreign Secretary S Jaiishankar visited China on June 16-17 to seek Beijing’s support for India’s NSG (Nuclear Suppliers Group) membership bid, Indian media quoting officials reported on Sunday. His under the radar visit comes ahead of a key NSG meet to be held in Seoul on June 24.

Confirming Jaishankar’s unannounced trip to Beijing, Indian ministry of external affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup said that the foreign secretary was in China from June 16-17 “for bilateral consultations with his Chinese counterpart. All major issues, including India’s NSG membership, were discussed.” This is the second time that Jaishankar has raised India’s NSG bid with China. The last discussion was held in May on the sidelines of President Pranab Mukherjee’s China visit.
