Iran's nuclear power plant goes under emergency shutdown
Iran's Bushehr nuclear plant was shut down on Saturday. While some say it is because parts are not coming from sanctions- bound Russia, others fear a security concern is the reason.

TEHRAN, June 22: Iran's only nuclear power plant was shut down under an unknown emergency situation. The Bushehr plant shutdown began on Saturday and would last "for three to four days," the State TV said. Large-scale power outages are feared.

The plant, started in 2011 with Russian aid, is located in the southern port city of Bushehr. The TV indicated that repair work is going on. The plant has a 1,000-megawatt light water reactor.

The report came even as the talks on restoring the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and global powers to check Iranian nuclear development were going on. The European Union on Sunday chaired the final meeting in Vienna of the sixth round of talks between Russia, China, Germany, France, Britain and Iran. The then-President Donald Trump had pulled Washington out of the agreement unilaterally in 2018. The election of Iran's new President Ebrahim Raisi last Friday is likely to delay a US return to the pact.

Months earlier it was reported that Iran would not be able to procure parts from Russia in view of the sanctions imposed by the US on Russia in 2018. The uranium used in the plant also has to come from Russia. The plant operation is monitored by the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency.
