NEW DELHI: India and Pakistan are not the only countries seeking a ticket to join the coveted Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG); Namibia, world's fourth largest producer of uranium, is understood to have also submitted its application for membership, according to people familiar with the development.

While India has launched intense diplomatic parleys to win support of most NSG member states and Pakistan too is making hectic efforts to reach out the members, little is known about Namibia's application and diplomatic efforts.

The 48-member NSG will decide on the applications at its plenary scheduled in Seoul on 23rd - 24th June. The group works by consensus.

Namibia is a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons - commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) - since 1992.
