Iran starts second atomic power plant 

Iran has started building a second atomic power plant in an oil-rich region near the border with Iraq, Iran’s Ambassador to Russia was quoted as saying Friday by Itar-Tass news agency.

 The ambassador to Moscow said Iran had been trying to ease Russian concerns about its space program after the test launch of a rocket this month.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Ministry Alexander Losyukov said this week the launch raised suspicions about the real nature of Iran’s atomic program.

“We are explaining to our friends that we are not pursuing any military goals as far as our space research is concerned,” the (Iranian) ambassador was quoted as saying.
