New Delhi: After wrapping up his visit to the US, PM Modi arrived in Mexico for the fifth and final leg of his five-nation tour where he received crucial support of the country in its bid to become member of the NSG ahead.
“Mexico supports positively and constructively India’s membership of the NSG,” the Mexican President said at a joint media interaction with Modi.

“We are looking to move beyond buyer-seller relationship and into a long-term partnership… We have agreed to develop a roadmap of concrete outcomes to upgrade our ties to a Strategic Partnership,” said the Prime Minister who arrived here earlier in the day from Washington on the last leg of his five-nation tour.
Leader of the two nations stressed on exploring ways to deepen bilateral cooperation in key areas including in trade and investment, information technology, climate change and energy.
The NSG had granted an exclusive waiver for India in 2008 to access civil nuclear technology after China backed India’s case based on the Indo-US nuclear deal.
In a special gesture, Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto on Thursday drove Prime Minister Narendra Modi to a restaurant for Mexican vegetarian fare.
