Swiss President supports India’s bid to join 48-member NSG


Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann in Geneva on 6 June.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 6 June won the support of Swiss President Johann-Schneider Ammann to go into the elite 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). The green signal was given during the bilateral talks held by the two delegations in Geneva.

This apart, support has also been extended by the prim and propah Swiss banks to reveal the names of Indians who have stashed money there.

The help in revealing the black money stashed in Swiss banks would help India in preventing tax evasion, which is a major priority of the two countries.

The United States and many other countries have supported India’s bid to join the elite group. After his US visit, Modi, who will proceed to Mexico, will also seek that country’s support in joining the NSG.
