‘Iran to start construction of 2 nuclear power plants soon’

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi announced that the country will start building two new nuclear power plants in the near future.

 

"Construction of two 1000-MW power plants will start soon," Salehi told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday.

"We will build two other small power plants too in cooperation with China," he added.

Asked about cooperation with different countries to develop Iran's nuclear industry after implementation of the July nuclear agreement, Salehi said, "Certain European and Asian states, including China, Japan and South Korea, are ready for cooperation, and conditions have changed compared with the past."

In relevant remarks late December, AEOI Spokesman, Behrouz Kamalvandi announced that Tehran and Moscow will launch joint construction of nuclear power plants in Iran in the next few weeks.
