Iran says fuel not unloaded at Bushehr nuclear site

TEHRAN, March 1 (Reuters) - Iran has not unloaded fuel at its Bushehr nuclear power plant, its Foreign Ministry spokesman told Reuters on Tuesday, contradicting information from a senior Iranian envoy.

“The nuclear fuel has not been unloaded at the Bushehr power plant and this plant is continuing its routine activities,” spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said.

Iran’s ambassador to the U.N. nuclear watchdog had said on Feb. 26 that Tehran was having to remove fuel from the reactor of its only nuclear power station, signalling more problems for the Russian-built Bushehr plant after decades of delay.
