NUCLEAR: IAEA Chief “Not Worried” by Bushehr Plant
The nuclear power plant Russia is building for Iran in Beshehr “is not apparently at the centre of international concern because Bushehr is a project to produce nuclear energy,” UN International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei said on Tuesday, after a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The $800 million project “is not something that is of any concern on our part,” he said , adding that it was not mentioned in his one-hour talk with Putin, in which the two talked about a nuclear-free Middle East. The US has called on Russia to abandon the Bushehr project, which US fears Iran would use as a cover for the transfer of other sensitive nuclear technology, AP reports.
