UN experts seal containers of Russian nuclear fuel intended for Iran

UN atomic watchdog agency experts on Friday ended their inspection and sealed containers of Russian uranium fuel that is intended for Iran's first nuclear power plant, Russian officials said. The completion of the International Atomic Energy Agency's work at Russia's main manufacturer of nuclear power plant fuel moves the delivery of the fuel for the Bushehr plant one step closer - a step likely to further stoke concerns among Western nations deeply suspicious of Iran's intentions. "The IAEA team together with representatives of the Federal Agency for Atomic Agency, the Iranian customer and the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrate Plant examined the nuclear fuel and sealed the containers," state-run nuclear fuel manufacturer TVEL said in the statement.
