GENEVA, June 6 - In a major boost to its diplomatic push for NSG membership, India today managed to win crucial support of Switzerland ahead of a key meeting of the 48-nation bloc even as the two countries agreed to step up cooperation in unearthing black money stashed by Indians in Swiss banks.

Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann announced his country�s support to India�s membership in the elite Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) after holding comprehensive talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on a range of

bilateral and global issues.

Switzerland is a key member of the NSG and its support to India�s bid for membership of the elite grouping was seen as crucial in the backdrop of China harping on the need for consensus as India was not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

�We have promised India support in its efforts to become a member of NSG,� Schneider-Ammann said at a joint media interaction with Modi.

In his remarks, the Prime Minister thanked the Swiss President for Switzerland�s �understanding and support� for India�s membership of the NSG. He also said combating the menace of black money and tax evasion was

�shared priority� for both the countries.

The US and many other NSG member countries have supported India�s inclusion based on its non-proliferation track record. The NSG works under the principle of unanimity and even one country�s vote against India will scuttle its bid. � PTI
