EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana began a meeting with Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani on Tuesday to present proposals aimed at persuading Iran to halt making nuclear fuel, an Iranian official said.

The package of incentives and penalties, backed by six world powers, seeks to defuse a standoff over Iran's nuclear programme.

The West accuses Iran of seeking to build atomic bombs, a charge Tehran denies.
