New Delhi, July 7 (UNI) A team of officials from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is in the capital and will hold discussions tomorrow with Indian officials on the contours of India-specific (Nuclear) Safeguards Agreement.

The discusions will focus on India-specific Nuclear Safeguards Agreement that needs to be put in place as one of the requirement for the final implementation of the Civilian Nuclear deal.

''The team is here and will have discussions regarding the contours of the India-Specific Safeguards Agreement,'' an External Affairs Ministry spokesman said today.

The India-Specific Agreement will enable the IAEA to supervise India's civilian nuclear facilities, according to the 'separation plan' presented by India.

India has identified 14 of its 22 nuclear facilities as civilian which would be open to international supervision.

The IAEA Safeguards Agreement is one of the crucial steps towards the implementation of the deal in addition to the US amendment in law and approval by the 45-nation nuclear lobby Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG).
