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.
