IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Moscow, March 17, Itar-Tass/ACSNA/IRNA -- Head of the Federal Service 
for Nuclear Supervision Andrei Malyshev said the construction of the 
nuclear power plant in Bushehr faces organizational and financial 
difficulties. 
At the same time, Malyshev said, "There are no serious technical 
problems at the construction site." 
Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday, the Russian official 
said, "Russia is complying with its obligations under the agreements 
and contracts on the construction of reactors and turbines." 
In his words, `there are problems related to supplies of 
additional equipment that is being bought by Iran. The Iranian side is
saving the funding`. 
"The part of equipment, which is necessary to complete the 
construction, should have been bought in Europe that bans supplies of 
such equipment to Iran," Malyshev said. 
But `now it`s possible to solve all these problems and there are 
no reasons for doubting this Iranian facility is over`, Malyshev 
stressed. 
Under the Russian-Iranian agreement, the Federal Service for 
Nuclear Supervision `will provide aid to Iran to commission the 
nuclear power plant in Bushehr`, the official said.
