Al-Sadr had refused to meet with the delegation.
However, the cleric wrote a letter saying he "has agreed on the conditions set by the National Conference."
The plan also called for al-Sadr's militia to transform into a political party.
The fighters would then get amnesty.
The militia has been fighting U-S and Iraqi forces for most of the month in Najaf.
