Iran Official to Visit

TEHRAN, Iran -- The head of Iran's nuclear energy program will visit Moscow next month at the invitation of his Russian counterpart, a newspaper reported.

"Iran's Atomic Energy Organization head Gholamreza Aghazadeh is due to leave here for Moscow next month on an official visit to Russia," the English-language Tehran Times newspaper said Sunday, quoting an unidentified source.

Russian firms have been hired to complete an unfinished 1,000-megawatt nuclear power plant at the Iranian Gulf port of Bushehr at a cost of $850 million.
