World press on the Russian-Iranian cooperation in nuclear sphere (November 11-12, 2014)Russia will build two nuclear reactors in Iran to be possibly followed by another six. "The deal comes less than two weeks before the 24 November deadline for Tehran to sign an agreement on its nuclear programme with six world powers. Tuesday’s contract has no immediate relation to the talks that involve Russia and the US, but it reflects Moscow’s intention to deepen its links with Tehran before possible softening of western sanctions against Iran", the Guardian comments on this deal.Sergei Kiriyenko, the head of Russia’s Rosatom state corporation, and Iran’s nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, also signed a protocol envisaging possible construction of two more reactors in Bushehr and another four in an undetermined location - which the Guardian calls "a move intended to cement closer ties between the two countries"."Rosatom said the construction of the new reactors would be monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency. As in the case of Bushehr’s first reactor that became operational in 2013, Russia will supply uranium fuel and then take it back for reprocessing – a provision intended to prevent a possibility of Iran using the spent fuel to build atomic weapons", writes the Guardian.
