MOSCOW, May 22 (Itar-Tass) - Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant may be commissioned in the near future, the head of Russia’s Rosatom corporation Sergei Kiriyenko told the media on Wednesday.

When asked if the NPP might go operational in the summer, Kiriyenko replied, “I do hope this will happen in the summer or even earlier.”
“From the very beginning our position was this. Safety enjoys priority. There will be as many checks and re-checks as necessary,” he said.
The power plant is being checked and tuned up,” Kiriyenko added.
