A top U.N. nuclear watchdog official arrived in Iran on Thursday for talks on cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency over Tehran's nuclear programme, Iran's IRNA news agency reported.

Diplomats in Vienna, where the IAEA is based, said "the two parties will assess the trend of cooperation between Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation and the IAEA," IRNA said in a report that said Olli Heinonen, the IAEA's deputy director, would hold talks in Tehran on Thursday and Friday.

Western capitals have said Iran now faces a new round of U.N. sanctions.
