Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a media briefing here, "China has never recognized India and Pakistan as nuclear countries. There is no change in our attitude in this regard. "

He was answering the question that China would recognize North Korea as an atomic country like India and Pakistan. China has been obstructing entry of India into a 48-member Nuclear Suppliers Group on the basis that India has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
