Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, who was in India for the foreign office consultations, described India's non-proliferation record as "impeccable".
In voicing its support for India's entry into the Nuclear Supplier Group (NSG), Russia said that India's application for membership can not be likened to that of Pakistan.
China, which blocked New Delhi's plea for admission into the NSG, is not a member of the Wassenaar Arrangement.
"We have discussed India's prospective NSG membership during our exchanges".
The United States, which has a nuclear cooperation deal with India, considers it a nuclear power that plays by the rules and is not a proliferator, and wants to bring Asia's third largest economy into the 48-member group.
Reacting to his statement, the Chinese foreign ministry said Beijing won't change its mind on India's entry. "In this circumstance if we agree for the above-mentioned applications, it will have two consequences, that is to recognise the nuclear weapons status of the Non-NPT countries. First is to find a non-discriminatory solution that applies to all non-NPT (Nuclear Proliferation Treaty) contracting countries and then, on this basis, discuss the application of the non-NPT contracting countries", Geng said.
Ryabkov, who spoke in New Delhi, also said India's case can not be compared to Pakistan's.
China suggested that the NSG can pool the wisdom and further explore on this issue and find a solution which can be accepted by all relevant parties and can uphold the worldwide non-proliferation regime with NPT as a cornerstone.
