No problems between Iran and Russia: AEOI
Iran does not have any problems with Russia delaying the opening of the Bushehr Nuclear Station, Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) head Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted as saying by the Iranian Ilna news agency today.
According to the official, the West is trying to harm Iran-Russia cooperation by spreading false rumors. On the contrary, he added, Russia is working overtime to open the Bushehr Nuclear Station plant in 2010.
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 initially to finish by Jan. 8, 1999. Ten years have passed, but the station is still not ready to open. The Russian AtomStroyExport company is building the plant.
