El Baradei, who today had wide-ranging discussion with Indian Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon, avoided speaking to reporters after the meeting.

On Wednesday, he had come out in strong support of the Indo-US nuclear deal and had said that he would like to see New Delhi managing to come out from the restrictions imposed by the 45-member Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).

El Baradei’s visit to New Delhi gains significance in the wake of the UPA Government acceding to the Left Front’s demand of not initiating formal talks with the international agency on India-specific safeguard agreement till October 22.

He has also said that there was no time frame for discussions to begin.
