Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said construction will soon start construction on another nuclear power plant in the country's southwest Bushehr province, Iranian Tasnim news agency reported.

“The first nuclear power plant is in operation in Bushehr province, and the construction of the second one will soon kick off ; development of new atomic power plants in the country will start in earnest and there will be nuclear reactors in most parts of Bushehr province,” Tasnim quoted him as saying.

In reference to the recently-signed deal in Geneva with world powers on the Islamic Republic's disputed nuclear program, Rouhani said the airs in the international arena were less tense.

However, the Iranian president stressed that "our enemies and rivals will not give up their hostility and rivalry."
