'Outlier' China blocked India's NSG membership: Obama administration
The outgoing Obama administration has lashed out at China for blocking India from becoming a member of the Nuclear Suppliers Group by describing the Communist giant as an "outlier" in its effort to bring New Delhi on board the elite grouping.
"Clearly there is one outlier that needs to be addressed and that is China," Nisha Desai Biswal, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia, told PTI in an interview.
The US statement comes a week ahead of the Obama Administration passing on the baton to the Trump Administration.
