Amid hectic efforts to ensure end to the deadlock between government and Left parties over the Indo-US nuclear deal, NCP chief Sharad Pawar has met External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee in Dubai and discussed the prevailing political situation here.
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 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.
