In an oblique reference to China's plans to supply two additional nuclear reactors to Pakistan, the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) on Friday called for “consultation and transparency”.

In a statement issued at the conclusion of 20th Plenary meeting of the 46-nation NSG in Christchurch, the group said challenges to the international nuclear non-proliferation regime remained.

It said that the NSG, in particular, has taken note of briefings on developments concerning non-NSG states.

Meanwhile, despite serious objections being raised by the US and India over China’s offer to help Pakistan build two nuclear reactors, a couple of Chinese companies have already signed contracts with Islamabad in this regard.
