IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, August 15, IRNA -- Majlis Energy Commission spokesman, Emad Hosseini, said on Sunday that Iran will officially load fuel into Bushehr nuclear power plant on September 16.
Speaking to IRNA, Hosseini said Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi had already replied to questions posed by Majlis representatives to this effect.
He expressed the hope that after 30 years, the nuclear plant would start operation and increase the country’s electricity generation capacity.
The move indicates that pressure exerted by western countries on Iran and UNSC’s sanctions have left no impact on enrichment process as well as launch of the nuclear plant, Hosseini said.
