Abbasi Calls for IAEA Without Pre-Assumption

  1/10/2013
Summary:TEHRAN - Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Fereydoun Abbasi Davani said yesterday that the future talks will enjoy positive outcome if representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency recognize Iran's rights.
Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony to commemorate martyrdom anniversary of two nuclear scientists Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan and Reza Qashqaee, he said the IAEA representatives should enter future talks without prejudgment.
The fresh talks, to be held on January 16, will have fruitful outcome if the UN nuclear watchdog is determined to lighten the realities in a fair manner and recognizes the rights of the Iranian nation, he stressed.
On the present situation of the Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran, the AEOI chief said the plant has joined the country's electricity network since January 4 with its full capacity.
He went on to say that country's nuclear power plant Bushehr would need 2-3 years to become fully operational, Fars reported.
"According to the scheduled plan, the country should produce about 20,000 megawatt hours of electricity," Abbasi noted. "This is equal to 20 1000 megawattBushehr plants, or 60 nuclear plants of less capacity."
He added that Bushehr can work on its nominal capacity, however for the full implementation of the project, more time is needed, namely 2-3 years.
Abbasi noted that after all the security measures are taken, the Iranian specialists can take the control of Bushehr from the Russian experts.
"The necessary security tests need to be undertaken, to ensure everything is right, security wise," Abbasi said. "This is vital for us to be sure that the plant works safely."
Iran signed a deal with Russia in 1995, according to which the plant was originally scheduled for completion in 1999.
In September 2011, the Bushehr nuclear power plant officially began its operations, generating electricity at 40 percent of its capacity.
