Hong Kong, June 30: Upset over insufficient global support for China's position in Seoul which blocked India's entry into the NSG, China has pulled up Wang Qun, its chief negotiator and Director General of the Arms Control Division at the Foreign Ministry.
Reportedly Wang promised to get one third of NSG nations in favour of China to support its anti-India position at NSG.
He failed to make his promise fulfilled as only four nations out
of 44 members supported China's position.
NSG fallout has at time when China is awaiting for a crucial verdict from Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague in a case brought by the Philippines concerning China's territorial reclamation activities in the South China Sea. China fears that failure at NSG may have an impact on the verdict.
"As things stand, Beijing's stance flies in the face of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) of which it is a signatory. China's big fear now is India could use the same ploy that Beijing used in Seoul at the NSG plenary and back The Hague Court's decision which is likely to go against China," reported ANI.
