Tehran: Iran's state media say the country has stopped providing fuel to European planes in retaliation for their refusal to supply fuel to Iranian aircraft.

The official English-language Iran Daily newspaper today quoted First Vice President Mohammad Reza Rahimi as saying that Iran has issued an order banning the supply of jet fuel to European airlines.

The newspaper says the order is effective immediately.

Iran is at odds with the West over its nuclear programme.

Tehran's refusal to halt uranium enrichment has brought four sets of UN sanctions against Iran.

The US and its allies accuse Iran of seeking to build nuclear weapons, a charge Tehran denies.
