At the NSG plenary in Seoul in June, China had blocked India's membership on the ground that for a country to become a member of the 48-nation bloc, it has to be a signatory of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

On September 13, Gill and Wang started their discussions on the issue in New Delhi.
