MOSCOW May 22 Russia could sign an agreement
this year to build eight new reactors for nuclear power plants
in Iran, state-run Russian news agency RIA reported on Thursday,
citing a source it did not identify.
Russia built Iran's only operating nuclear power reactor, at
the Bushehr plant.
Longstanding Western fears that the Bushehr project could
help Iran develop nuclear weapons - something it denies it is
seeking to do - receded after Iran promised to send the spent
fuel from the plant back to Russia.
