    The EU's foreign policy chief will meet with Iran's top nuclear negotiator next week, two months after Iran reached an agreement with the UN nuclear watchdog, the local IRNA news agency said Tuesday.

    TEHRAN, October 16 (RIA Novosti) - The EU's foreign policy chief will meet with Iran's top nuclear negotiator next week, two months after Iran reached an agreement with the UN nuclear watchdog, the local IRNA news agency said Tuesday.

    Javier Solana did not give a date or place for his meeting with Ali Larijani.

    On August 21, Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) agreed on a working plan to resolve, by the year end, all questions the watchdog agency has about Iran's nuclear program, which Western countries suspect of being a secret weapons program but Iran says is aimed at generating energy.

    The IAEA later confirmed Iran's experiments with plutonium were a closed issue.

    Six negotiators on Iran - five permanent UN Security Council members and Germany - postponed September 28 a decision on further sanctions against Iran until late November when they expect reports from Solana and IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei.
