TEHRAN - Iran's first nuclear power station will not start working this month as planned, several parliamentarians were quoted as saying on Monday, blaming Russian builders for the latest delay in a project Tehran hopes will showcase its peaceful atomic aims.

Members of a parliamentary committee set up to examine the status of the Bushehr plant on Iran's Gulf coast said costs had spiraled but did not say why the latest delay had happened.

"The commissioning of the plant within the time frame promised by the officials will not be possible and it is still far from getting linked to the national electricity grid," lawmaker Asgar Jalalian told Aftab Yazd daily.
