What About Bushehr?

ISNA quoted Iran’s national security officials today that problems regarding the start of work at Bushehr are being resolved and the country’s first nuclear power plant will start its operation within the next two months (ISNA, 5 July).

However, chief of Russia’s atomic energy agency told TASS news agency yesterday that the plant could not possibly be launched for another year (ITAR-TASS, 4 July).

Javad Vaidi, deputy secretary of Iran’s National Security Council told ISNA that the Iranian experts are finishing up the work at the plant and that he expects all outstanding issues with the Russians to be resolved in the next few weeks.
