Iran's state TV says the country welcomes foreign experts to accompany the international envoys invited to visit its nuclear facilities.

The early Thursday report quotes Ramin Mehmanparast spokesman of the Iranian Foreign Ministry as saying an invitation by Iran to representatives of Russia, China, EU, developing and Arab countries to visit the country's nuclear facilities would be extended to experts accompanying the envoys.

The state news agency also reported Thursday that Ali Asghar Soltanieh Iran's envoy to the UN atomic agency says that representatives from Egypt and Algeria as well as Venezuela and Syria would visit Iran's nuclear sites on Saturday and Sunday.

The European Union has said it will not attend the tour.
