Iran's top nuclear negotiator and the head of its Supreme National Security Council, Hassan Rowhani, leaves for India on Wednesday on a three day trip for talks with Indian officials, said the official news agency IRNA.

Rowhani would hold talks with Prime Minister ABVajpayee, Foreign Minister Yashwant Sinha and Defence Minister George Fernandes, the agency added.

Iran's nuclear programme has been under international scrutiny in recent months. In November, the International Atomic Energy Agencyblamed Tehran for 18 years of covert nuclear activities, although a report said there was no clear evidence Iran has been developing nuclear arms.

Iran has recently acknowledged it had been acquiring nuclear technology on the black market.
