China said it plans to build two nuclear power plants in Iran.
 
China’s reactors will be two of four planned for Iran, according to Energy Business Review. Iran and several world powers, including the U.S., recently agreed to let international experts have access to nuclear sites in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions. The deal will allow Iran to keep its uranium stockpile for 10 years.
 
Construction on the four additional nuclear plants is expected to begin simultaneously in the next two to three years. Iran is currently home of the 1,000-MW Bushehr nuclear power plant, the country’s first.
