UAE congratulates Iran on N-fueling
Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan has congratulated Iran over the fueling of the country's first nuclear power plant, Press TV reported.
The UAE's top diplomat said that the fueling of Iran's nuclear plant in the southern city of Bushehr will also help "decrease the environmental pollution in the region," Fars news agency reported him as saying on Monday.
The Emirati minister made the comments in the UAE capital Abu Dhabi upon receiving the credentials of the new Iranian ambassador to the Persian Gulf state, Mohammad Reza Fayyaz.
Iran began loading the Bushehr plant with fuel on Saturday in an effort to provide the country with nuclear-generated electricity.
Iran seeks to generate 20,000 megawatts of nuclear energy within the next 20 years.
