"Confirming that the WA's existing membership criteria continue to apply, WA Participating States reviewed the progress of a number of current membership applications and agreed at the Plenary meeting to admit India which will become the Arrangement's 42nd Participating State as soon as the necessary procedural arrangements for joining the WA are completed", Jean- Louis Falconi, who chaired the cartel's plenary on behalf of French Government, said in a statement issued from Vienna late on Thursday.
China has been stridently opposing India's bid primarily on the grounds that New Delhi is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Ryabkov said the issue of India's membership to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), another major non-proliferation group, has been "politicised", which, he termed, "unfortunate" and noted that New Delhi's application should viewed on merit.
In 2016, China led the opposition to a push by the United States to bring India into the NSG which aims to prevent nuclear weapons proliferation by stopping the sale of items that can be used to make nuclear arms.
"China supports the NSG to follow the principle of consensus through consultation through transparent and fair intergovernmental process to deal with this issue", Geng said.

Membership to the Wassenaar Arrangement and Australia Group, another export control regime, would give India a chance for a closer interaction with member-states and also hold up its credentials, despite not being a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Membership in the group is by consensus. "I can assure you that Russia's ties with no country in the world will come at the expense of its relationship with India", said Ryabkov.
India's admission to the Arrangement is not predicated on this requirement; New Delhi has never signed the NPT and has sought to burnish its nonproliferation credentials through its behavior and policies since its nuclear breakout in 1998. "Secondly, it will cause other than nuclear weapons free countries to follow suit not to sign CSA with IAEA", he said.
"On this we will further discuss application of non-contracting parties", Geng said.
Earlier, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said here that India was likely to get membership of the grouping during the plenary in Vienna. At the same time they will exchange views on worldwide issues of common concern.
