The Russian government is planning to sign a contract to build up to eight new nuclear reactors in Iran, according to sources close to the negotiations speaking to Reuters. The news follows reports that Russia had planned to build two new nuclear reactors for the country.
The source told Reuters that the plan would include two nuclear reactors but could grow, depending on negotiations, to up to eight. "Russia and Iran may sign an intergovernmental agreement this year on building from four to eight nuclear reactors, and, under the deal, the contract for the construction of the first two reactors as additions to Bushehr," the source added. Bushehr, Iran's first and only nuclear power plant and the first of its kind in the Middle East, began operating thanks to Russian construction in 2011.
Reuters also notes that Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom had said that it was negotiating with Iran to build another reactor. Rosatom did not respond to requests for comment on this development.

“Iran will have nuclear weapons.”
Possibly, possibly Iran will have nuclear accidents.
Reactors are complex, and things could happen . . . .
Note that the missiles which the Russians sold to Iraq were paid for before those missiles were destroyed by unfortunate Iraqi accidents or Israeli acts.
Russians are happy, Israelis are happy - what’s not to like?
