Bushehr, Feb 26, IRNA-Tender documents for establishment of two 1000-megawatt nuclear power plants in Bushehr have been prepared and will be released in a month, said head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization (IAEO) Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh here on Sunday.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a press conference along with his Russian counterpart S. Kiriyenko on Sunday, Aqazadeh said naturally, Russia too will be invited to contribute to the establishment of the two power plants.
Aqazadeh said due to close relations between Iran and Russia, participation of Moscow in the projects is among the issues that will be taken into account.
On the date for completion of Bushehr nuclear power plant, Aqazadeh said Tehran and Moscow have held extensive talks in that connection and Kiriyenko's visit to Iran to supervise the pace of progress in implementing the power plant has brought about new ideas.
He said since 90 percent of operations for construction of Bushehr nuclear power plant is completed, committees have been formed to follow up different aspects of the issue.
He added that formation of a joint committee to look into speedy delivery of the remaining equipment is among other points on which he and his Russian counterpart have agreed.
The official noted that a joint committee has also been formed to set the timetable for completion of the project this year.
Aqazadeh said Kiriyenko has agreed to receive a monthly report on the performance of Iran-Russia joint committee and arrange meetings, if necessary, at the level of the heads of the two countries' atomic energy organizations.
He said that in their meetings the two sides have also reached agreement on the fuel shipment.
