  • Iran builds two new reactors at Bushehr nuclear plant
According to the provincial governor, Anadolu Agency reports that Iran is building two new reactors at the Bushehr nuclear power plant on the country's southwestern coast. Bushehr Governor, Ahmad Mohammadizadeh, said the new reactors would each have a capacity of 1,800 megawatts and are being built by young Iranian engineers without foreign assistance or expertise. Bushehr nuclear power plant, the only functional reactor in Iran with a capacity of 1,000 megawatts, was built by Russian engineers and handed over to Iran's atomic energy agency in September 2013. These developments come amid a standoff over the 2015 nuclear deal, with indirect talks between Tehran and Washington aimed at the revival of the accord stalled since last August.
