The director of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, Mohammad Eslami, has assured that the Islamic Republic will not exceed its 60 percent uranium enrichment level, even though negotiating efforts developed in Vienna to revive the nuclear deal and lift US sanctions failed.

The Bushehr construction is the largest Russian-Iranian energy project. The first reactor was connected to Iran’s power grid in 2011 and construction of the second block is underway, while the contract for the third unit has been signed.
