IRAN, RUSSIA CAN'T AGREE ON BUSHEHR
Middle East Newsline
28th of March, 2004
MOSCOW [MENL] -- Iran and Russia have failed to agree on a schedule for the completion of the Bushehr nuclear reactor.
Russian officials said Moscow and Teheran have yet to agree on a construction schedule, deliveries of nuclear fuel and a repayment schedule for the estimated $1 billion Bushehr reactor. The disagreements have prevented the visit of a high-level Russian nuclear delegation to Iran to complete the accord.
So far, Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency director Alexander Rumyantsev has twice postponed visits to Teheran to complete talks meant to advance the Bushehr reactor. The first cancellation was in January and the second was in March.
Rumyantsev now plans to arrive in Teheran in the middle of May. Agency spokesman Nikolai Shingarev said the two sides would seek to agree on arrangements for the return of Russian spent nuclear fuel for Bushehr. http://www.menewsline.com/stories/2004/march/03_28_2.html
