Poland backs India's NSG, UNSC bid

Vice President Hamid Ansari today said that his ongoing visit to Poland has been very productive and he would go back to India on a positive note.

Ansari thanked Polish leadership for its support to Indias bid for NSG membership, Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) issue and a permanent seat in the expanded UN Security Council.

Appreciating the contribution of Indians, he said the Indian community in Poland contributes immensely in enriching Indo-Polish relationship.

One the other hand, Pakistan emphasises the need to take a criteria based approach if any new member wants to join the Nuclear Supplies Group.

"Every two years, for example, solar installation rates are doubling, and photovoltaic-module costs are falling by about 20 per cent", Ansari said while delivering an address on "Some Thoughts on the World of Tomorrow" at Yerevan State University (Armenia) where he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree.

India and Poland on Thursday signed an agreement on the exchange of information and technology in the agriculture sector. Minister of State for Small Industries Giriraj Singh and MPs Sitaram Yechury, D.P. Tripathi, Vivek Tankha, and Thupstan Chhewang are part of the delegation.

"For past few decades, India and Poland relations are growing with a good pace. This is written in the United Nations 1945 Charter, and we are obliged to adopt these values", Ansari said. We must adopt common values.

"We can expand our trade relation in various sector". Indian investments in Poland amount to around $3 billion and Polish investments in India are of about $600 million.

India has close economic ties with Poland.

"Our cooperation will be mutually beneficial".

"We also hope to cooperate in civil aviation and defence sector", she said.
