Russia has signed a preliminary agreement to build at least two more nuclear power plants in the Iranian port city of Bushehr, Iran's official IRNA news agency reported on Wednesday.
"Iran and Russia reached a preliminary agreement to build at least two new nuclear power plants," Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told the news agency.
In January, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that establishing long-term relations between the two countries "can serve the stability and security of the region".
Iranian media last month speculated that Rouhani could travel to Russia for a regional conference of Caspian Sea states that Tehran's envoy to Moscow has said will be in late September.
Construction of the new Bushehr nuclear plants is likely to spark concerns among Gulf Arab states, which have often raised concerns about the reliability of the existing Bushehr facility and the risk of radioactive leaks in case of a major earthquake.
Iran sits astride several major fault lines and is prone to frequent quakes. On April 9, a 6.1-magnitude quake rocked the south, with an epicentre just 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Bushehr.
Western powers and Israel suspect the Islamic republic's nuclear programme masks a covert weapons drive. Tehran denies the charge, saying that by diversifying its energy resources it wants to reduce its reliance on oil revenues.

There is just too much going on in our country and the world for obama to handle, his narcissism will turn him into a psychopath, which has IMO already happened, some long time ago.
My dream news: Israel Offers to Bomb Them
They sealed their fate.
Eventually some of the Iranian nukes will end up in the hands of the Russian crazies. But Putin is too short sighted to see that.
The Muslim crazies are out to destroy all civilization, and Russia is almost civilized....
And they get "Playboy" for the articles.
watch as Iran’s Groups in The Middle east act up to put the pressure on Isreal to keep the US eyes off Criemea. Its a trade off.
