TEHRAN, Oct 15 (Reuters) Russian President Vladimir Putin will arrive in Tehran tomorrow morning, not today evening as earlier announced, the office of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

Putin, who held talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Wiesbaden on Monday, said he would visit Iran to discuss its nuclear programme despite a reported assassination plot against him.

''Russian President Vladimir Putin will arrive in Tehran, heading a delegation, tomorrow morning after leaving Germany,'' the Iranian presidential office said on its Web site.

The Kremlin declined to comment on when the president would arrive. Putin is attending a summit of leaders from the five Caspian Sea states in the Iranian capital tomorrow.
