CBNNews.com - On Sunday, the fourth shipment of fuel from Russia arrived at Iran's Bushehr nuclear power plant.

According to a report in the Islamic Republic News Agency, 11 tons arrived at the plant Sunday, two days after the third shipment arrived Friday.

Of the 85 tons of fuel for the plant, 40 tons remain to be delivered.

According to Iran, the plant will begin producing half of its 1,000-megawatt capacity by this summer.

Iran has allegedly agreed to ship the spent fuel back to Russia before extracting the plutonium needed to build a nuclear bomb.

According to Iranian officials, the country will continue enriching uranium for its light-water reactor, located in Darkhovin in the southwestern Iran.

Iran says it plans to generate 20,000 megawatts of electricity from its nuclear power plants over the next 20 years and that it never had aspirations to produce nuclear warheads.
