Atomic power plant in Iran in line with international agreements

Russia is building an atomic power plant in Iran in strict accordance with international agreements and attentively sees to it that no sensitive nuclear technologies be shared within this project. Russian Minister of Atomic Energy Alexander Rumyantsev told reporters about this on Wednesday in the United Nations HQ.

He underscored that the construction of the atomic power plant in Bushehr was going on under the strict control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

"Within a year the IAEA inspectors have carried out more than sixty checks. Considering that there are only fifty-two weeks in a year, this means that they make their inspections every week, and so far they have not found anything that would contradict the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons," said Alexander Rumyantsev.

The Russian Atomic Energy Minister said that in the next two weeks the IAEA governing council would consider the Iranian scientific-technological developments in the nuclear sphere. "We shall attentively follow this session," underscored Alexander Rumyantsev.
