Any Nuclear Deal with Russia without Tender Illegal: MP

Commenting on reports that Iran plans to sign a new agreement with Russia for building nuclear reactor, he said Iran should invite tenders for the construction of new nuclear reactors otherwise the decision is not legal.

Iran has faced problems with Russia in completing Bushehr nuclear power plant, which is located on the Persian Gulf coast.

Iran signed an agreement with Russia in 1995, according to which the plant was originally scheduled to be completed in 1999. However, the project was repeatedly delayed by the Russians due to intense pressure exerted by the United States and its Western allies. Russia finally completed the construction of the plant in summer 2010.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said earlier this week that the plant will come on stream by the end of August.

Salehi announced that the plant will reach 40 percent of its full capacity around mid-August and will be connected to the national power grid by the end of the month.

Salehi, who was formerly the director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), also said the Bushehr nuclear power plant faced a minor pump problem that delayed the processes for some two months.

On October 26, 2010, Iran started loading fuel into the core of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in the initial phase of the launch of the country's first nuclear reactor.

However, the fuel was removed later due to safety considerations and then reloaded into the core of the reactor.

The facility operates under the full supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
