Iran is prepared to give the International Atomic Energy Agency "full supervision" of its nuclear programme for five years if UN sanctions are lifted.

"We have proposed that the agency keep Iran’s activities and nuclear programme under full supervision for five years, providing the sanctions are lifted," the nuclear chief, Fereydoun Abbasi Davani, told ISNA news agency on Monday.

Iran is under four sets of UN Security Council sanctions over its refusal to suspend uranium enrichment amid international fears that it seeks to build a nuclear weapon - a charge Tehran flatly denies.
