Iran intends to build two new nuclear power stations

Representative of the Committee on Defence and Foreign Affairs in the Iranian Parliament Sayed Hussain Naqvi revealed his country's intention to build two new nuclear power stations in cooperation with Russia.

News channel Russia Today quoted Naqvi on Sunday saying that Iran's parliament declared the need for Iran to get 20,000 megawatts of electric power, which requires the construction of ten nuclear power plants.

The Iranian official added that the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) has prepared a plan for the construction of these plants, but because it is not possible to build the ten power plants at the same time, the current plan is to start with building two stations.

In November 2014, Tehran and Moscow signed a number of documents regarding the expansion of cooperation between the two sides in the field of the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
