Agreement to build 2 Nuclear Units

Iran and Russia signed an agreement on the construction of two new nuclear power plant units in Bushehr during a visit by Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Director Ali Akbar Salehi to Moscow on Tuesday.  
The deal is the fruit of months-long negotiations between Tehran and Moscow. Under the agreement signed by Salehi and the director of the Russian state atomic agency Rosatom, Sergey Kirienko, Moscow will also cooperate with Tehran on the construction of more nuclear power plants and consider producing nuclear fuel components there.
Iran already runs one Russian-built reactor in the Bushehr power plant which generates 1,000 megawatts of electricity. The plant, whose construction was delayed for years, was officially launched in September 2011.
Salehi said Iran plans to construct more nuclear power plant units in Bushehr following the completion of the two new units in the southern port city.  He also said the projects are part of the government's plan to generate 20,000 megawatts of nuclear power as approved by parliament.
