Tehran (ISNA) - Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom said its project to develop new units at Iran's Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant has not been affected by ongoing tensions arising from intensified US sanctions against Iran.

Rosatom Director General, Alexey Likhachov told RIA Novosti, "Rosatom has always met and is meeting all its obligations in all of its international projects."

Russian Foreign Ministry also expressed its intention to continue cooperation with Iran, despite the US sanctions and Tehran's decision to suspend some of its obligations under the Iran nuclear agreement.

The ministry said Moscow will continue to build the Bushehr plant in southern Iran and convert the Fordow uranium enrichment facility into a stable isotope production facility.

"We would like to express our readiness to continue [to] cooperate with Tehran within the framework of JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action], as well as in other bilateral projects," the ministry said on Thursday.
