Senior Iranian and Russian nuclear officials said Moscow has agreed to ship fuel for a controversial atomic power plant it is building in Iran by March, news agencies reported Tuesday, as Iran's nuclear chief met with a Russian security officer at the Kremlin. The agreement signed Tuesday by Sergei Shmatko, head of the state-run company Atomstroiexport, and Mahmoud Hanatian, vice president of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, should allay Iran's complaints that Moscow is dragging its feet on supplying fuel for the Bushehr plant. It will also renew concerns by the West, which accuses Tehran of seeking to enrich uranium in order to build nuclear weapons.
