The group's membership has signed the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty but India has refused to do so.Pakistan, which is also a candidate for the NSG membership , feels encouraged by the increasing support for well-defined and neutral membership criteria for non-NPT candidates. The FO said Pakistan has expressed its openness to measures for strengthening non-proliferation objectives to the NSG . This includes proposal for binding bilateral agreement with India on non-testing.
