Moscow, Feb 25: Russia wants to complete building of a nuclear power station in Iran as soon as possible, the country's top nuclear official said today (Feb 25, 2006), news agency reported.

Sergei Kiriyenko, head of Russia's atomic energy agency Rosatom, said during a visit to Tehran that the civilian nuclear plant at Bushehr in Iran would be completed as fast as possible. Russia is helping to build the plant.

"We don't see any political obstacles to completing Bushehr and we are interested in it (the station) being launched in the swiftest possible period", Kiriyenko said, news agency reported.

Moscow is offering to enrich the uranium Iran needs for nuclear power stations on Russian soil, an arrangement that would help ease international concerns that Tehran could divert the material for bomb-making.
