The first shipment of nuclear fuel for Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant by Russia will strengthen strategic ties between Teheran and Moscow, a top nuclear official said Wednesday. Iran received its first nuclear fuel from Russia after a long delay on Monday, paving the way for the startup of its 1000 megawatt Bushehr light-water reactor in 2008.
