    TEHRAN, July 5 (RIA Novosti, Nikolai Terekhov) - The head of the Russian Audit Chamber, the country's financial watchdog, said Russia was interested in building more power units at the nuclear power plant in Bushehr, Iran.

    "While visiting the first unit of the Bushehr nuclear power plant being built by Russian specialists, Russian and Iranian officials discussed whether Russia will take part in the construction of second, third, and fourth units," Sergei Stepashin said.

    Stepashin said: "Russia is prepared for and genuinely interested in this."

    "However, the question is what the current Iranian government means by the new nuclear policy of the Islamic Republic," said Stepashin.
