BEIJING, June 5 - Amid deepening divisions over the disputed South China Sea, China and US will hold their high level annual Strategic and Economic Dialogue here tomorrow during which a host of issues including differences over India�s entry into the NSG are expected to be discussed.
Billed as the most comprehensive dialogue between the world�s two largest economies, it will be attended by top officials from both sides, including US Secretary of State John Kerry.
While South China Sea issue which has now become a major flash point between the two countries is expected to dominate the two-day talks, a host of other issues including Taiwan, Tibet and India�s inclusion in the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) are also expected to figure.
While the US has expressed its firm backing to India�s inclusion into the 48-member nuclear club building on the India-US nuclear accord, China has been insisting that there should be consensus among the members about inclusion of countries who have not signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
India has not signed the NPT on the ground that it is discriminatory. � PTI
