The head of the UN nuclear watchdog is "positively considering" an invitation from the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a diplomatic source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday.

Some US politicians have asked for more information to be made public relating to the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) role in monitoring and verifying Iran's nuclear program.

"I understand that Director General (Yukiya) Amano overnight (Vienna time) received an invitation letter from the members of the US senate committee on foreign relations. I also understand that (he) is positively considering the invitation," the source said.
