TEHRAN – Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant will be operational by the end of September, MP Alireza Salimi has quoted the new head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran(AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi as saying.

Salehi, in a meeting of the Majlis Education Committee on Sunday, promised that Bushehr Nuclear Plant would come on stream in two months, Salimi told the Fars news agency in an interview published on Monday.
In March 2009, the head of Russia's state nuclear power corporation Rosatom, Sergei Kiriyenko, announced that Russia had completed the construction of the plant. A series of pre-launch tests were conducted after the announcement. Iranian Energy Minister Parviz Fattah has said that the Bushehr would be brought up to full capacity by the end of March 2010
