Iran wants to co-operate with Russia in the field of nuclear energy
Iranian Finance Minister Ehsan Khandozi said his country wants to co-operate with Russia in the field of nuclear and new types of energy, RIA Novosti reports
Mr. Khandozi stated that co-operation with Russia will favourably influence the Iranian economy, “The prospect of co-operation in the field of new energy and renewable energy sources, as well as in the field of other types of energy, including peaceful nuclear energy, certainly arouses great interest and motivation for expanding economic relations with Russia.”
Iran and Russia jointly work over a major project: construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant. In September 2021, its first power unit was connected to the Iranian national energy system. The second one is currently under construction, and a third one is planned to be built. Moscow also supplies Iran with nuclear fuel, which is needed to ensure power block operation.
