VIENNA - The United Nations nuclear watchdog chief said he did not expect to visit Iran's Parchin military site during his visit to the country but was positive about his talks with Iranian officials scheduled for Monday.

"My visit to Tehran... will help to reach agreement on a structured approach (on addressing inspectors' questions on Iran's nuclear work)," Yukiya Amano, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told reporters at Vienna airport on Sunday before flying to the Iranian capital.

"Nothing is certain but let's stay positive."

Amano will meet Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili in Tehran on Monday, two days before the Islamic state and six world powers hold broader negotiations in Baghdad about their nuclear dispute.
