Iran was expecting to sign an agreement on its disputed nuclear ambitions with the UN's nuclear watchdog chief on Monday, AFP cited Tehran's envoy to the IAEA as saying Saturday.

"The Islamic republic of Iran has presented a new proposal that includes concrete actions, and we foresee that the text will be finalized on Monday and that the two sides will reach agreement," AFP quoted Reza Najafi as saying.

As Iran met for talks with world powers in Geneva, the International Atomic Energy Agency on Friday confirmed that its director-general had agreed to visit the Islamic Republic.

The IAEA said Amano "will travel to Tehran on 10 November to meet senior Iranian leaders on Monday, 11 November, with the aim of strengthening dialogue and cooperation," AFP reported.
