Iran is set to move a step closer to the start-up of its first nuclear power plant on Tuesday as it is planning to load fuel into the core of the Bushehr reactor, a senior lawmaker said Monday.

According to Iranian officials the Russian-built nuclear plant will start producing energy as early as 2011 after years of delays.

"Despite all efforts and policies of America and the European Union to put sanctions on Iran, the fuel of the Bushehr power plant will be loaded into its core tomorrow," MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi was quoted as saying by official media.
