Russia Could Build 8 More Nuclear Plants in Iran

Russia plans to sign a contract with Iran this year to build two more nuclear reactors at its Bushehr power plant, as part of a broader deal for up to eight reactors in Iran, a source close to the negotiations told Reuters on Thursday.

Russia, one of the six world powers currently holding negotiations with Iran on a permanent nuclear deal, built Iran's only operating nuclear power reactor at Bushehr.
