Moscow, March 21, IRNA - An advisor to Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency said due to financial and technical problems in building Bushehr Power Plant, the plant will be ready at least two months later than the previously scheduled date.
Igor Samokhovalev told IRNA Wednesday in spite of some financial and technical difficulties, the construction work on the plant is in progress.
Referring to negotiations between representatives of the plant contractor 'Atomstroyexport' and Iranian officials, Samokhovalev said, "the early March talks in Moscow had no results but the negotiations in Tehran were fruitful." He said the talks would continue in Tehran or Moscow in coming weeks.
The Russian company 'Atomstroyexport' recently claimed that the Iranian side had not paid for the contract in the past three months but the officials of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization categorically rejected the allegation.
