Iran plans to build an additional nuclear reactor next to its only existing reactor in the southern city of Bushehr, AFP quoted Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani, the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization as saying on Sunday.

"Iran will build a 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant in Bushehr next year," Abbasi-Davani reportedly said.

Russia provides Iran with fuel for the Bushehr reactor. A new reactor would serve to boost electricity production in the Islamic Republic. The United States State Department has said it views the Bushehr plant as a civilian-energy program without a military dimension.
