Iran to build high capacity power plants
Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast
Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman says Majlis (Parliament) has given the go-ahead for building 20,000 MW nuclear power plants to meet the country's growing electricity demand.
“We welcome any country that wants to sign contract for building nuclear power plants [in Iran] based on our conditions,” Ramin Mehmanparast told the Voice of Russia radio on Friday.
He added that the newly commissioned Bushehr nuclear power plant only generates 1,000 MW of electricity and Iran needs to do more in this area.
“The launch of Bushehr nuclear power plant has prepared the grounds for Russian cooperation in Iranian projects,” he added.
Mehmanparast said that the injustice prevailing in the world is the result of a few countries trying to impose their will and policies on other states and to own the world.
“But we believe that all countries must participate in global management and every country must have a share in establishing an equitable world system in proportion to their status and importance,” he added.
Mehmanparast arrived in Moscow for a weeklong visit on October 9, 2011 at the head of a delegation of media officials to discuss bilateral media interaction.
