RIA Novosti

TEHRAN, February 28 (RIA Novosti's Nikolai Terekhov) - Secrecy about Russian fuel exports to the first unit of the Bushehr nuclear plant is meant to keep commercial competitors away, Abdollah Ramazanzadeh, official spokesman for the Iranian government, told journalists on Monday

Iran is sure Russia will commission the unit on schedule, he added.

On Sunday Russia and Iran signed an agreement to return nuclear waste from the first unit to Russia, and a confidential protocol on fuel supply terms.

The 1,000 megawatt project, under construction by Russian specialists, is to be commissioned next year.
