Sajjadi also rejected reports related to the infection of the plant by the computer worm and said unloading fuel from the reactor has nothing to do with the Stuxnet worm.

Spokesman and Director General of Public Relations and Information Office of AEOI Hamid Khadem-Qaemi also told ISNA that "unloading fuel from Bushehr nuclear facility has been exaggerated by some news agencies and reports. The actions taken in the plant are normal."

Both Iran and Russia have agreed to conduct necessary technical inspections to ensure the reactor's safety, Khadem-Qaemi said.

"Ensuring the plant's safety in future and continuous professional cooperation with Russia have priority over hasty operation of the plant," he was quoted as saying.

Soltanieh said nuclear fuel would be placed in the reactor's core again after the tests are conducted.
