MOSCOW (AP) – Russia’s nuclear chief is set to travel to Iran in February to discuss the completion of a Russian-built nuclear plant and Moscow’s proposals to enrich Iran’s uranium on Russian territory, officials said Friday.

Sergei Kiriyenko, head of the Federal Atomic Energy Agency, is expected to focus on a schedule for the completion of the Bushehr nuclear plant Russia is building in southern Iran, his spokesman Sergei Novikov said.

“Issues relating to Russia’s proposal to Iran to move its enrichment program to Russian territory will be discussed as well,” Novikov told The Associated Press.

Iran initially had dismissed the Russian offer, but it softened its stance Thursday when a top Iranian official said that his nation was considering it.

The proposal backed by the European Union and the United States is the centerpiece of global efforts to ensure that Iran cannot build nuclear weapons. Shifting enrichment activities to Russia would, in theory, make sure that uranium is enriched to a level needed to fuel reactors but not sufficient for building an atomic bomb.
