Gulf Arab states expressed concern at a summit on Wednesday over Iran's plans to build more atomic power plants, while welcoming a nuclear deal it struck with six world powers last month.

Iranian media have said Tehran is in serious talks with Russia to construct new nuclear power stations, based on a 1992 agreement with Moscow.

Abdullatif al-Zayani, Secretary-General of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), said after the two-day summit in Kuwait: "The council expressed concern regarding announcements over plans to build more nuclear reactors on the banks of the Gulf that threaten the environmental system and water security."

The Gulf states, especially Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, the regional heavyweight, see Shi'ite Iran as their chief rival but have cautiously welcomed its Nov. 24 interim accord with world powers.
