TEHRAN, October 8. (ITAR-TASS). Iranian experts have determined the location of new plants, which Tehran intends to build on the coasts of the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea. This was announced by the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi in an interview with Tasnim news agency published today.
According to Salehi, who was Minister of Foreign Affairs in the previous administration, Tehran prefers “the southern direction”. He explained this “preference” by the fact that the new plants would be objects of “dual use”. In addition to generating electricity for the economy of the whole country, they will be used to supply energy to desalination plants. “The last purpose is particularly topical for southern provinces of Iran that due to climatic conditions are suffering from fresh water shortage,” Salehi said.
September 23, Salehi announced that Iran and Russia were holding “technical talks” to build a new nuclear power plant unit in Bushehr. Head of AEOI expressed hope that these negotiations would soon be finished successfully, and the practical implementation of the project would begin.
