TEHRAN, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Fereidoon Abbasi, said Monday that Iran will launch Bushehr nuclear power plant completely at the end of autumn, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Abbasi said that the turbine of the power plant made by Russia has passed an initial "successful test" but it needs longer time for the completion of all the tests.

Iran has started negotiations with Russia for the construction of more nuclear power plants in the country, he told IRNA.

Other countries, especially those from the West, can also participate in the construction of Iranian power plants, he added.
