Iran-EU talks postponed one day

Larijani's decision to postpone his trip by one day was unexpected.

BRUSSELS, Belgium (CNN) -- European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana will meet with Iran's top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani on Thursday in Brussels, after the Iranian postponed the meeting by a day without an explanation, Solana's office said.

"I was surprised to hear that Dr. Ali Larijani has decided at the last minute to postpone his trip to Brussels as previously agreed with him to take place today," Solana said.

The two will discuss a proposal to give Iran economic, technical and political incentives if it halts uranium enrichment.

The EU high representative spoke to Larijani on the telephone and they agreed to a second meeting on Tuesday, July 11.

"I have made clear to the Iranians and to Dr. Larijani that we want to proceed rapidly to examine together the ideas I put to him early last month."
