India joins the Australia Group

On January 19, 2018 the Indian Ministry of External Affairs announced that India has joined the Australia Group (AG).  The AG, in a consensus decision, admitted India as the 43rd participant.  

The Australia Group, established in 1985, is a voluntary and informal export control arrangement in which 42 countries, as well as the European Union, coordinate their national export controls.  The purpose is to limit the supply of chemicals and biological agents-as well as related equipment, technologies, and knowledge-to countries and entities that are suspected of pursuing chemical or biological weapons capabilities.
