Iran says Russia agrees to deliver nuclear fuel

Iran and Russia have agreed on a timetable for the delivery of fuel to the Bushehr nuclear power plant. That's according to the Islamic Republic’s state broadcaster, who quotes Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Ali Larijani.

Russia’s sub-contractor Atomstroiexport says the facility will not be ready until autumn 2008. Moscow blames the delay on Iranian failure to meet monthly payments.

Meanwhile, Iran denies this, saying that Russia is under pressure from the West.
