The Iran vote issue is threatening to snowball into a major headache for the Congress-led coalition with the CPI(M).
The Left partydeclared it has a "common understanding" with the Samajwadi Party on the matter, but parried questions on supporting SP's proposed no-confidence motion in the Lok Sabha.
"There is a common understanding with Samajwadi Party on several issues, including Iran," CPI(M) General Secretary Prakash Karat told reporters after nearly a 30-minute meeting with SP supremo and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav in New Delhi.
He, however, skirted questions on whether CPI(M) would support the proposed no-confidence motion saying, "I will discuss it with my Parliamentary colleagues and then take a decision."
