Russian Energy Minister Sergei Shmatkov said today that Iran is in “full compliance” with IAEA safeguard and security regulations to start the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant (BNP) [Ettelaat, 3 March].

BNP, a 1,000-megawatt light water reactor, under construction since 1974, is finally expected to start generating power later this year. Iranian and Russian nuclear engineers began a test run of the reactor in mid-February.
