Unnamed diplomats warn deal may not be sunk as Iran refuses to explain its atomic detonators.
TEHRAN, IRAN (Worthy News)-- Russia plans to build two more nuclear power plants in Iran. After months of negotiations, the deal is expected to be signed this week.
Under a provisional agreement, Russia will build two more 1,000-megawatt plants next to Iran's sole existing plants in the southern Gulf port city of Bushehr.
Oil-rich Iran says it wants to operate at least 20 nuclear power plants capable of producing 20,000 megawatts of electricity, as a way of decreasing dependency on its vast oil and gas resources. -- Source
