"Of course," Rosatom Director General Sergey Kirienko told reporters on Tuesday when asked whether a comprehensive deal on Tehran’s controversial nuclear activities would help boost its nuclear energy cooperation with Russia.
In addition to building one unit of Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant, "all documents and an intergovernmental agreement were signed last year on the construction of eight units in Iran, at Bushehr and on a new site. A contract for the first four has been signed," Kirienko said.
Iran is awaiting the removal of Western sanctions imposed on the country over fears it might be developing nuclear weapons under the guise of a civilian nuclear energy program. The deadline for a final comprehensive nuclear deal between international negotiators and Tehran is set for June 30.
