Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said that India will never sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said that India will never sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

While making statement in the Lok Sabha, she said, India will continue to engage with China over its opposition to India's entry to the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

"If someone does not agree to something once, it doesn't mean that they will never agree to it. We are continuing our efforts in engaging with China on this issue," the foreign minister said on India's bid to gain entry to the NSG.

Swaraj's statements on the NSG issue came in response to queries from Opposition members on the status of India's bid for entry into the elite nuclear trading group.
