TEHRAN, September 11 (Itar-Tass) —— Experience, gained over construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, should be used in future, Russia’s Minister of Energy Sergei Shmatko told a news conference while answering a question whether Russia would support Iran in construction of other nuclear energy objects.
“The level of cooperation between Russian and Iranian engineers, gained over the construction of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, is our mutual value, and I believe it should be used in future,” he said. “As for other projects, I have to admit that nuclear energy has been going through tough times after the dreadful accident at Fukushima.”
“I believe that Russia and Iran have big future in implementation of other projects in nuclear energy, but we should remember that this activity should be synchronised fully, should be integrated into the processes, which happen in the world nowadays regarding nuclear energy,” Shmatko said.
On Monday, co-chairs of the intergovernmental commission Sergei Shmatko and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic Ali Akbar Salehi, as well as Head of Rosatom state corporation Sergei Kiriyenko will participate in the ceremony of putting operational the first energy block of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, which has been constructed by Russia’s Atomstoiexport Company.
