The United States has congratulated India on becoming the newest member of the Australia Group, an informal forum that seeks to prevent the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons, and which now counts 43 members.

The State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert today said the latest accomplishment underscores New Delhi’s excellent non-proliferation credentials and commitment to preventing the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

She said, India’s accession bolsters the effectiveness of the regime’s non-proliferation efforts.

India last week gained entry into the Australia Group (AG), an important non-proliferation regime which seeks to ensure that exports do not contribute to the development of chemical or biological weapons.
