Iran's chief nuclear negotiator will meet European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana in Geneva on July 19 for talks on Iran's disputed nuclear programme, Iran's official IRNA news agency said on Friday.

"Based on Solana's invitation, Saeed Jalili will meet Solana in Geneva on July 19 to discuss the nuclear package," Ahmad Khademolmelleh, spokesman for Iran's Supreme National security Council, told IRNA.

The visit follows up a trip in June when Solana presented a package of incentives proposed by world powers to coax Iran to halt sensitive nuclear work the West fears is aimed making bombs, a charge Tehran denies. Iran has offered its own package to resolve the standoff.
