Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Wednesday that the first stage of the operation of Bushehr power plant would start in summer, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"The first stage of Bushehr nuclear power plant will come on stream in summer," Mottaki said.

Despite barriers to the implementation of the project, Iran's Foreign Ministry and Atomic Energy Organization of Iran are doing their best to successfully finalize the project, IRNA quoted him as saying without elaborating on the barriers.

"There is no problem with Russia in terms of diplomacy and relations and there is no justification for any delay," he said, adding that "If there appears any change in Russia's stand to this effect, Iran will take very clear position in dealing with it."

Last Wednesday, Sergei Kiriyenko, head of Russia's Rosatom state nuclear energy corporation, said that no exact time for the final launch of Iran's Bushehr atomic power plant could be specified.

The country's 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant originally started in the mid-1970s by Siemens of Germany but was abandoned with the outbreak of the country's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iran and Russia, after reaching an agreement on nuclear cooperation in 1992, signed a contract in January 1995 to finish the construction of the plant, the completion of which has been repeatedly delayed.
