US talks tough on India's failed NSG bid, says China must be held accountable

Countries who blocked Indias entry into NSG must be held accountable, says US
A week after India failed to get entry into Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) due to China-led opposition, the US on 29 June said one country can break consensus in the atomic trading bloc and insisted that such member should be held accountable. US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon asserted that the US is committed to ensuring Indias entry into the NSG while expressing "regret" that Washington was unsuccessful in making India a member of the bloc in its pleanary in Seoul last week. "We understand that in a consensus-based organisation, one country can break consensus. But in order to do so it must be (held) accountable not isolated. "I think what we need to do going forward is, for both of us India and the US, sit down and take a call what happened in the Seoul, take a close look at the diplomatic process which is significant and see what more we can do and how we can ensure that next time we are successful," he said during an interactive session at the Foreign Service Institute. Calling India an "anchor of stability" in the Asia Pacifc region, US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon also said what China was doing in South China Sea is "madness" and it wants New Delhi to play a major role in the Indian Ocean. Shannon said managing the rise of China was a major challenge and that the US wants to work with India to have a strong and comprehensive presence in the Indian Ocean. Describing India a responsible and important player in the sphere of nuclear non-proliferation, Shannon said, "We are committed to having India join the Nuclear Suppliers Group. We believe that through the kind of work we have done, the civil nuclear agreement, the way India conducted itself, it is worthy of this." On Indias NSG bid, he said the US would continue to work for Indias inclusion in the group. Shannon, who met Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar earlier in the day, said Indias recent entry into the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) highlighted that the country is a "responsible and important player in the road to non- proliferation." "We regret, in Seoul we and India, were unable to open space necessary to allow India to move into the NSG at this moment," he said. When asked whether he thinks India will ratify the Paris climate deal before Obama administrations tenure got over and, at the same time, it will become a member of the NSG, he said "I hope so". He said India has given a commitment to ratify the climate deal. Shannon said that Indo-US civil nuclear cooperation was a very important symbol of friendship between the two countries. "Just a few weeks ago, President Obama and Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi welcomed the start of preparatory work on a site in Andhra Pradesh for six AP 1000 reactors to be built by an American company. "This is expected to provide jobs in both countries and bring clean, reliable electricity that will help meet India s growing energy needs while reducing reliance on fossil fuels," he said. -with inputs from agencies

Member who blocked India's entry into NSG be held accountable: US diplomat
A week after India failed to get entry into Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) due to China-led opposition, the US today said one country can break consensus in the atomic trading bloc and insisted that such member should be held accountable. US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon asserted that the US is committed to ensuring Indias entry into the NSG while expressing "regret" that Washington was unsuccessful in making India a member of the bloc in its pleanary in Seoul last week. "We understand that in a consensus-based organisation, one country can break consensus. But in order to do so it must be (held) accountable not isolated. "I think what we need to do going forward is, for both of us India and the US, sit down and take a call what happened in the Seoul, take a close look at the diplomatic process which is significant and see what more we can do and how we can ensure that next time we are successful," he said during an interactive session at the Foreign Service Institute. Calling India an "anchor of stability" in the Asia Pacifc region, US Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon also said what China was doing in South China Sea is "madness" and it wants New Delhi to play a major role in the Indian Ocean. Shannon said managing the rise of China was a major challenge and that the US wants to work with India to have a strong and comprehensive presence in the Indian Ocean. Describing India a responsible and important player in the sphere of nuclear non-proliferation, Shannon said, "We are committed to having India join the Nuclear Suppliers Group. We believe that through the kind of work we have done, the civil nuclear agreement, the way India conducted itself, it is worthy of this." On Indias NSG bid, he said the US would continue to work for Indias inclusion in the group. Shannon, who met Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar earlier in the day, said Indias recent entry into the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) highlighted that the country is a "responsible and important player in the road to non- proliferation." "We regret, in Seoul we and India, were unable to open space necessary to allow India to move into the NSG at this moment," he said. When asked whether he thinks India will ratify the Paris climate deal before Obama administrations tenure got over and, at the same time, it will become a member of the NSG, he said "I hope so". He said India has given a commitment to ratify the climate deal. Shannon said that Indo-US civil nuclear cooperation was a very important symbol of friendship between the two countries. "Just a few weeks ago, President Obama and Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi welcomed the start of preparatory work on a site in Andhra Pradesh for six AP 1000 reactors to be built by an American company. "This is expected to provide jobs in both countries and bring clean, reliable electricity that will help meet India's growing energy needs while reducing reliance on fossil fuels," he said.

Metal and mining stocks rise as Cabinet approves National Mineral Exploration Policy

Cabinet clears mineral exploration policy
The Centre on Wednesday approved the National Mineral Exploration Policy (NMEP), which will pave the way for auction of 100 prospective mineral blocks and boosting the country's mining potential. "The Cabinet cleared NMEP. After the policy is approved, the government can auction 100 blocks that have been identified by the Geological Survey of India (GSI) for exploration," said an official from the Ministry of Mines. To encourage mineral exploration in the country, the Mines Ministry has already notified the National Mineral Exploration Trust (NMET). "Through NMEP, the government wants to attract private sector in exploration, besides involving state-run GSI, MECL (Mineral Exploration Corporation of India) and other notified agencies. States will also play a greater role by referring exploration projects, which can be taken up through NMET," said the official. One of the important features of NMEP is attractive provisions for private investment in the exploration sector, the official added. The Ministry of Mines will carry out auctioning of identified exploration blocks for exploration by private sector on revenue sharing basis in case their exploration leads to auctionable resources. The revenue will be borne by the successful bidder of those auctionable blocks, said a release from the ministry. If the explorer agencies do not discover any auctionable resources, their exploration expenditure will be reimbursed on normative cost basis. The government will carry out a National Aerogeophysical Programme for acquiring state-of-the-art baseline data for targeting concealed mineral deposits, said the statement. A National Geoscientific Data Repository is proposed to be set up to collate all baseline and mineral exploration information generated by various central and state government agencies and also mineral concession holders and to maintain these on geospatial database, said the release. Of India's entire Obvious Geological Potential (OGP) area, identified by GSI, only 10% has been explored and mining is undertaken in 1.5-2% of this area.
