 Iran & Russia to produce nuclear fuel

Iran and Russia signed a deal to jointly produce nuclear fuel in Iran.
 
The two nations say the fuel agreement will deepen nuclear cooperation between them. Russia completed construction of Iran’s first nuclear power plant, the 1,000-MW Bushehr nuclear power plant, in August 2012 and handed over control of the plant in September 2013. Russia has plans to build eight more nuclear reactors in Iran, according to Press TV. Up to four of the new builds would be located at the Bushehr plant and the remaining four would be located at a not yet chosen site.
 
The two countries have also expressed interest in cooperating in the field of nuclear fuel cycle and ecology, the article said, and they could potentially produce components of nuclear fuel in Iran in the near future.
