Iran received the final shipment of uranium fuel from Russia on Monday for its first nuclear plant, state media reported, a key step toward the launch of the reactor's operations expected later this year.
Iran has said Bushehr, the country's first nuclear reactor, will begin operating in the summer of 2008, running at half its 1,000-megawatt capacity.
Tehran has heralded the shipments as a victory, saying they proved its nuclear program was peaceful, not a cover for weapons development as claimed by the U.S. and some of its allies.
