Russia delays Iran nuclear plant to 2008-RIA

A Russian nuclear subcontractor said Iran's first atomic power plant in Bushehr would not be finished before autumn 2008, a delay of more than a year to earlier plans, RIA news agency reported on Wednesday.


"Today we can say for sure that to launch the Bushehr nuclear plant this autumn is unrealistic," Said Ivan Istomin, the head of a subcontractor working for the Russian state-owned firm building the plant, RIA reported. (Reuters)
