Deputy CEO for International Relations at Russian state company Rosatom described negotiations with Iranian officials on the construction of new nuclear power plants in Iran as positive and constructive. In a Tuesday meeting with Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi in Tehran, Nikolai Spassky said that mutual cooperation between the two countries in various areas, including Tehran’s nuclear talks with six world powers -one of which is Russia, has been constructive. During the meeting, Spassky also briefed the Iranian diplomat on the recent agreement between Tehran and Moscow on the construction of new nuclear power plants in the southern Iranian port city of Bushehr and described the talks on the issue as positive. Earlier on Monday, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), had announced that Tehran and Moscow are planned to finalize an agreement on the construction of at least two more nuclear power plants in Bushehr. The agreement is part of a 1992 deal between the two countries on further nuclear cooperation. According to the agreement, the new facilities will be built next to the first unit of the Bushehr nuclear power plant and each will have the capacity to produce at least 1,000 megawatts of electricity, Kamalvandi said, adding that the deal also includes the construction of two desalination units. “It is possible that in addition to the two nuclear power plants, we will also discuss (the construction of) further power plants,” Kamalvandi added. According to the Iranian official, the two sides agreed to finalize the text of the agreement by the next few weeks. Kamalvandi also said Head of the AEOI Ali Akbar Salehi is planned to make a trip to Moscow in August to sign the related contracts.
