India lowers China’s bid to pass anti-AUKUS resolution at IAEA


New Delhi: India has scuttled China’s bid to pass an anti-AUKUS resolution at the Vienna International Atomic Energy Agency meeting. The Aukus Pact was signed last year between Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States under which Canberra will receive nuclear-powered submarines. China is outraged by the development, calling it a violation under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). It even criticized the role of the IAEA for its stance on the issue.

Sources said: ‘India’s agile and impactful diplomacy has been much appreciated by IAEA member countries, especially AUKUS partners.’ The Indian Mission to the IAEA in Vienna worked closely with other IAEA member countries to reach a consensus on the issue.

The issue was raised at the IAEA General Conference which took place from September 26-30. After failing to gain majority support, Beijing withdrew the resolution on Friday (September 30).

Earlier this month, the UN nuclear watchdog reportedly expressed satisfaction with the pact. Sources said India “taken an objective stance…and recognized the adequacy of the IAEA’s technical evaluation”, stating “India’s deliberate role helped many smaller countries to take a clear stance on the Chinese proposal” .
