Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a meeting, during which the agreement on return of the spent nuclear fuel to Russia by Iran was inked, Aqazadeh said that the relevant nuclear trend is on progress and hoped that atomic energy will be available in 2006.
"Our Russian partner is determined to fully install the equipment of the first phase of the power plant in 10 months. Meanwhile, we are looking forward to implementation of the primary phase within the scheduled time with great hope," he added.
Given that the time of dispatch of the first fuel consignment is confidential, for the time being it cannot be declared officially.
Rumyantsev and Aqazadeh arrived in the southern city of Bushehr on Sunday morning, where they signed an agreement on return of Iran's spent nuclear fuel to Russia.
