Russia says Iran reactor on track for August launch

BUENOS AIRES, April 14 (Reuters) - A reactor being built by Russia at Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant is scheduled to open in August, the head of Russia’s state nuclear corporation said on Wednesday.

“The launch is scheduled for August. We’re on schedule,” Sergei Kiriyenko told reporters in Argentina during a visit. “Bushehr doesn’t threaten the regime of nonproliferation in any way. No one has any concerns about Bushehr.”
