AEOI head: Bushehr will be commissioned in September
The Bushehr reactor will be launched in September, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted as saying by ILNA.
Salehi said the anti-Iran resolution will not affect the startup process.
The Iranian-Russian contract to build the Bushehr Nuclear Station was signed in 1995 in Tehran. The contract's total value is $1 billion. The construction was supposed to finish by Jan. 8, 1999, but after 11 years the station is still not open. The Russian AtomStroyExport company is building the plant.
