TEHRAN, May 23 (UPI) -- The United Nation's nuclear watchdog says it has received new proposals from Iran regarding its provocative nuclear program.

Mohammad ElBaradei, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said he received Iran's "proposals" in response to the "additional bundle of incentives" the country received from the five permanent U.N. Security Council members and Germany, KUNA, the Kuwaiti news agency, reported Friday.

The content of the proposals was unclear but it was related to Iran's controversial nuclear program, the news agency said. Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's IAEA representative has denied claims his country had tested nuclear warheads, reiterating Iran's nuclear program was to produce electricity.

ElBaradei's report on Iran's nuclear activity was expected to be presented Monday, said IRNA, Iran's official news agency.

The IAEA Governors' Council was expected to discuss more fully the Iranian proposals when it meets June 2, KUNA said.
