Iranian nuclear progress, Bushehr to come online in days, other plants make progress

What is important is how Iran's neighbors will react. Despite the fact
that Iran's nuclear plants will provide an alternate to Oil, many people
want to use Iran's nuclear program to attack Iran. These include
zionists and whackos in the media like jeff kuna and joel skoussen who
advocate an attack on Iran if the Bushehr plant and other nuclear
facilities become fully operational.

Bushehr N. Power Plant to Join National Grid Next Month

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's first nuclear power plant will join the national
power grid by the end of August, an Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman
announced on Tuesday.

"We hope that the Bushehr power plant would become operational by the
end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan (late August)," Ramin
Mehman-Parast said in his weekly press conference here in Tehran today.

Mehman-Parast added that construction phase of the plant "have almost
become completed and it is currently in the testing stage".

"Iranians would, by that time (late August), officially celebrate" the
operation of the Bushehr power plant.

Iran signed a deal with Russia in 1995, according to which the plant was
originally scheduled for completion in 1999. However, the project was
repeatedly delayed by the Russian side due to the intense pressure
exerted on Moscow by the United States and its western allies. Russia
finally completed construction of the plant last summer.

On October 26, Iran started injecting fuel into the core of the Bushehr
nuclear power plant in the initial phase of launching the nuclear

The facility operates under the full supervision of the International
Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Iran Not to Stop N. Program

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian top diplomat Ali Akbar Salehi underlined Tehran's
firm resolve to continue nuclear progress, and said Iran will never halt
its uranium enrichment activities.

"Everyone should accept the fact that Iran's nuclear program has reached
a point where it cannot be stopped or reversed," Salehi said in an
interview with Rusiya Al-Yaum Arabic news channel on Wednesday.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will not halt its nuclear program," he

Salehi argued that nuclear technology in Iran has moved far ahead as a
fundamental and essential part of industry with centers spread all
across the country, and thus cannot be held back.

"After we have trained and employed thousands of nuclear scientists, how
could the West halt our uranium enrichment program?" the Iranian
minister questioned. "They should know that this is a fact."

Salehi described the West's pressure against Iran over its civilian
nuclear activity "as a test of patience and endurance" for the Islamic
Republic, and vowed, "No threat could shake and disrupt our independence
and sovereignty."

The Iranian official said the nuclear reactor in the facility in the
central city of Arak, Markazi province, was planned to be launched after
three to four years and would be capable of producing 45 megawatt

Regarding the nuclear power plant in the southern city of Bushehr,
Salehi said the facility would soon produce electricity in a trial mode
and join the country's power grid.

He hailed the cooperation by Russian experts and their efforts to start
the Bushehr power plant and expressed optimism on the future of
Tehran-Moscow ties.

Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a
member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), insists that
its nuclear program is solely directed at the civilian applications of
the technology.
