Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will visit Istanbul next week to discuss his country's nuclear programme with Turkey, a Turkish official, who declined to be named, told Reuters on Monday.
Ahmadinejad will hold talks with his Turkish counterpart Abdullah Gul during his one-day working visit on August 14, which comes after months of lobbying by Iran.
Turkey has offered to help resolve a dispute between Iran and the West over Tehran's nuclear programme. Ankara has good ties with both Iran and the West.
