Pawar meets Pranab over N-deal

July 02, 2008 14:39 IST

Amid hectic efforts to ensure an end to the deadlock between government and the Left parties over the Indo-US nuclear deal, Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar [Images] met External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee in Dubai and discussed the prevailing political situation.

Mukherjee and Pawar met at the Dubai Airport on Tuesday evening during the former's stopover en route to Egypt, sources said.

Pawar, agriculture minister and BCCI president, was in Dubai in connection with the two-day ICC [Images] annual conference which began on Wednesday.

The two are believed to have deliberated on the current political stalemate over the nuclear deal and efforts underway to end that.

Pawar has been insisting that the Left parties' concerns over the nuclear deal should be taken into consideration while deciding on going ahead with the agreement.
