Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted an invitation to visit Iran to discuss the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.

Fars News Agency, the media outlet run by Iran's Revolutionary Guards, said Iranian President Hassan Rowhani issued the invitation to Putin Friday while the two leaders attended a conference in Kyrgyzstan.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov confirmed that Putin had accepted, the Daily Caller reports.

"Russia could possibly take new steps in solving the Iranian nuclear dossier," Rowhani said.

"The Russian initiative in relation to the Syrian chemical weapons and the steps taken by the Syrian officials provide this hope that a new war can be averted in the region."

Putin called Iran "a good neighbor."

The United States and its allies believe Iran's nuclear program is intended to produce nuclear weapons.
