Deputy Head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Ahmad Fayyaz-Bakhsh left Tehran for Moscow at the head of a delegation to finalize issues pertaining to the delivery of nuclear fuel to Iran’s first nuclear power plant in the southern province of Bushehr. During the two to three-day talks, Fayyaz-Bakhsh and his entourage are due to wrap up the remaining issues for the delivery of the first nuclear fuel cargo to Iran.
The two sides have already attended several rounds of talks in Moscow and Tehran to settle the existing differences about the completion of Bushehr power plant and delivery of fuel to Iran.
Earlier, Fayyaz-Bakhsh had announced that the two sides have worked out a draft with promising details which could lead to the attainment of final results during his visit to Moscow.
Under a deal that was made between Tehran and Moscow last September, Russia was scheduled to deliver nuclear fuel to Iran in March, the power station would go into operation in September and it would start producing energy in November.
But Russia postponed delivery of nuclear fuel to Iran due to alleged financial problems, and demanded Tehran to act beyond the undertakings mentioned in the contract and render more financial aids and support to the Russian contractor, Atomstroiexport.
