Russia's President Vladimir Putin has postponed his historic visit to Teheran by a day, the official Iranian news agency said, stating the first Kremlin leader to come since World War II would arrive Tuesday. Putin had been expected in Teheran on Monday despite warnings of a possible assassination plot, and amid hopes that a round of personal diplomacy could help offer a solution to an international standoff over Iran's nuclear program. "Putin will arrive in Teheran at the head of a delegation tomorrow morning," the official IRNA news agency quoted Iran's presidential press service as saying late Monday. It gave no further details for the delayed arrival. Kremlin officials did not immediately comment on the reasons for the postponement.
