    Construction of the second and the third power-generating units for the Bushehr-2 nuclear power plant in Iran (NPP) may begin in 2016, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said Monday.

    BAKU (Sputnik) — The energy minister added that the pre-construction works were underway.

    "I think, we will see the beginning of the second and third units construction in some near future. I would prefer not to make plans now but I think that [construction will begin] this year," Novak told reporters.
