MOSCOW, November 13. /TASS/. The signing of an agreement on the construction of two new nuclear power plant units in Iran with Russia’s participation is "extremely important," Iranian Ambassador in Moscow Mehdi Sanaei said on Thursday.

“No doubt both countries seek to develop long-term cooperation. Iran and Russia take decisions within their national interests without paying attention to pressure from third parties,” Sanaei said.

“The agreement proves that in addition to the dialgoue the Iranian president is holding with the West, he attaches much significance to relations with Russia,” he said.

The signing of the memorandum for studying possibilities of joint production of fuel shows that “Russia wants to preserve its constructive role in Iran’s nuclear dossier in order to promote cooperation with Tehran and assist to the talks with the P5+1 group (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany).”

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi and director of Russia’s state-run nuclear corporation, Rosatom, Sergey Kiriyenko signed a package of agreements on the construction of eight nuclear power plant units in Iran on November 11. The parties signed a contract to build two units at the Bushehr nuclear power plant to further expansion to four units. Under the agreements, the parties intend to construct another four units on other platforms, which have not been determined yet.
