India has become a member of the arms control regime Wassenaar Arrangement, which may allow it better access to latest technologies and trade practices.
The two-day plenary session of the 41-member club commenced today.
It joined the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) in June a year ago, but China has stalled India's entry into the 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG), which controls access to critical nuclear knowhow.
"If everything goes as expected".
Since its civil nuclear deal with the US, India has been trying to get into export control regimes such as the NSG, the MTCR, the Australia Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement that regulate the conventional, nuclear, biological and chemicals weapons and technologies.
India is also keen to get the membership of Australian Group, which governs worldwide trade of materials used to make chemical and biological weapons.
"There are good chances of a positive action on the Indian application on the Wassenaar Arrangement (which) could be taken tomorrow", he said while interacting with mediapersons at the Russian Embassy here.
It aims to prevent the acquisition of these items by terrorists.
Russia's role is considered more important this year as it retains close ties with both India and China, two countries who have tense ties with each other.
"The issue of India's membership has been more politicised than anything else and it is an unfortunate development. We make this point in the contacts with the Chinese at different levels, and India should be confident of Russia's assistance".
The Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) admitted India as a member in June 2016.
Moreover, the USA backing for India in the aftermath of the two countries' bilateral agreement on civil nuclear cooperation in 2005 helped New Delhi acquire a waiver from the Nuclear Suppliers Group in 2008 and accede to the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) in 2016.
India's admission to the Wassenaar Arrangement was in part facilitated by China's nonparticipation in the Arrangement.
The Russian deputy foreign minister said he had an extensive discussion with Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar on issues ranging from the volatile situation in the Korean Peninsula to India's bid for NSG membership.
In 2016, China opposed India's accession to the Nuclear Suppliers Group, frustrating New Delhi, which had invested considerable diplomatic capital into its membership campaign.
"So, I don't think it will possible to interlink the application of India and Pakistan for becoming members of the NSG", he said.
