Thirty-four years of nuclear apartheid may have ended with India signing the 2008 Indo-US Civilian Nuclear deal but one critical goal still eludes the country - membership to the elite club that controls global nuclear commerce called the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). That could change any time, according to the head of the UN organisation that oversees the global convention meant to outlaw nuclear test explosions.

"Let's put the membership of the NSG on the table as negotiation for India joining the CTBT and anything would be acceptable to us, if India feels comfortable with that then why not," Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) chief Dr Lassina Zerbo said in an exclusive interview to NDTV.
