ImageBRUSSELS, Sept 11 (Reuters) – The European Union's foreign policy chief Javier Solana said on Friday that he was seeking an urgent meeting with the Iranian chief nuclear negotiator after consulting six major powers over proposals submitted by Iran.

"We are in contact with Dr (Saeed) Jalili's (Iran's chief nuclear negotiator) office to arrange a meeting at the earliest possible opportunity," Solana said in a statement.

Iran handed on Wednesday a package of proposals to major powers including the United States, Russia, France, Britain, China and Germany. The countries are evaluating the proposals after giving the Islamic Republic until this month to respond to their demand for talks on its nuclear programme.

The Iranian proposals include a global system to eliminate nuclear weapons as well as cooperation on Afghanistan and fighting terrorism. But, crucially, Iran said it would not discuss its uranium enrichment programme, which some Western powers fear could be used to build a nuclear bomb.

"We are all committed to meaningful negotiations with Iran to resolve the International Community's concerns about their nuclear programme," Solana said. (Reporting by Bate Felix)
