Beijing, June 23 (IANS) An India-China dialogue on economy and finance scheduled for June 27 has been “cancelled”, an official source told IANS.

“The meet stands cancelled,” the source told IANS.

The India-China Financial Dialogue, at the secretary-level, was to be held on June 27.

The cancellation comes even as Indian Finance Minister Arun Jaitley arrived here on Thursday on a five-day visit to attend a series of meetings.

The development closely follows China’s steadfast refusal to support India’s membership to the Nuclear Suppliers Group, on the grounds that New Delhi is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Most other members of the 48-member NSG have come out in support of India, ahead of an important plenary being held in Seoul to decide on the membership of India and Pakistan.
