Russia, Iran sign nuclear construction deal for 8 units (RT, Nov 11, 2014):

Russia is to build eight nuclear power units in Iran, as a new partnership agreement, guaranteed by the IAEA, was signed in Moscow on Tuesday.

The head of the Rosatom, Sergey Kirienko, and the chief of the Atomic Energy Agency of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, signed a series of documents, promoting the links in the field of peaceful application of atomic energy between the countries, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the agreement, Russia is to construct eight pressurized water reactors “turn-key ready” in Iran. Four of them will be built at the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant, also completed by Russia a year ago.

Besides, nuclear fuel for the future reactors will be provided by Russia during the whole life cycle of the new reactors. Spent fuel will be returned for processing and storage.

  1. Regardless of US lies and propaganda, Iran is a rich country today, and they are a fruitful trading partner for all who deal with them. Russia is making money, so are many other BRICS members. It is only the US, EU and Japan who struggle under endless depressions.
    Makes you wonder…..how soon will the EU members follow Switzerland’s example, and join BRICS………….
