China has no concern over the Indo-US civil nuclear deal so long as New Delhi fulfilled relevant international obligations, according to Chinese Ambassador to India Zhang Yan.

"India can enjoy right to peaceful nuclear energy provided it fulfils international obligations.... Provided it does not undermine international nuclear non-proliferation regime", he told PTI here last night.

"If the concerns of the international community are taken care of, then, I think you can achieve your objective", Zhang Yan, on a visit to Kerala, said.

Asked if China was worried over India moving closer to the United States, he said, "It is your foreign policy. How can I say anything about it."

On Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf's decision to step down, he said he did not have any comment on it. "I do not have any comment on it. It is news to me," he said.

Asked whether Musharraf's exit would have any impact on fundamentalist trends in Pakistan, he said, "I prefer not to discuss. We will watch the developments".
