"Since the Russian contractor of Bushehr nuclear power plant has worked properly (on the project) in recent years ... we are willing to work with them on several more power plants," Abbasi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency, reported Xinhua.

Bushehr nuclear power plant has already reached 75 percent of its capacity, he said, expressing hope that the power plant will approach its final capacity of 1,000 MW in late May.

The Russian State Atomic Agency Rosatom on Wednesday announced that work at the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Iran was proceeding as scheduled.

"There are no deviations from the schedule, everything is going in accordance with the dates set earlier," Sergei Kiriyenko, head of Rosatom said.
