Putin blames ‘worn-out’ equipment for Iran nuclear delay; Putin: Delay in completion of Bushehr power plant has no political reason
(IRNA) Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday that the delay in completion of Bushehr power plant has no political reason and Russia is seriously working to complete it as soon as possible.
He told IRNA and the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) that there are issues which should be settled between the two parties.
“Experts from Iran and Russia are currently working to resolve the issue,” he said.
Asked about the delivery of fuel by Russia, he said that fuel should be delivered three months ahead of putting the reactor into operation.
“We have signed agreement with Iranian friends according to which the burnt fuel should be returned to Russia. Experts will discuss this issue today too.”
He said that the Bushehr power plant from which a German company withdrew in the late 1970s has outdated equipment which should be replaced with modern ones and that was the reason for the delay.
The Russian president gave assurance that the delay in completion of Bushehr power plant has emanated from technology and legal issues and there is no political reason.
He said that the Russian Federation has undertaken to complete the project and will honor its undertaking.
