Iran makes first payment toward long-delayed Bushehr atomic energy plant: Russia

The Russian state-run company building Iran's first atomic power plant said Monday that Tehran has made its first payment toward the long-delayed construction of Bushehr plant since a dispute over financing halted construction.

"The fact that our Iranian partners have overcome their difficulties is positive," Atomstroiexport said in a statement, adding however that the payment was "still far" from full compensation for the Bushehr project, reports AP.
