Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani paid a visit to Iran’s nuclear power plant in southern port city of Bushehr.
According to IRNA, he arrived in the southern province of Bushehr Wednesday morning to attend a ceremony held to commemorate martyrdom of Reis Ali Delvari, Iran’s anti-British colonialism hero on September 3.
Upon arrival, he praised Bushehr people’s resistance against colonialist powersˈ efforts to occupy southern Iran. September 3 has been designated as the Day of Combat Against British Colonialism in Iran.
On September 23, 2013, Iran took temporary control of Bushehr nuclear power plant for a two-year trial period, after which the country will be in overall charge of the power plant.
Russia has agreed to provide the power plant’s fuel for 10 years, with the supply deal committing Tehran to returning the spent fuel.
The Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant became officially operational and was connected to Iran’s national grid in September 2011.
