Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Behrouz (Behruz) Kamalvandi said on 28 August that financing is now in place to build two more units at the Bushehr NPP.  He told the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA): "In order to complete negotiations on the two new power plants, we have provided financial resources at the order of the president [Hassan Rouhani], and the financial problem is settled. We will try to finalise negotiations in coming weeks and we will declare a date for the beginning of the construction of the power plants." An agreement to expand civilian nuclear energy cooperation and construct a total of eight additional nuclear reactors at Bushehr was signed between Russia and Iran in November 2014.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on 26 May verified Iran's compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries (USA, France, UK, China and Russia - plus Germany) in July 2015. In its second quarterly assessment since the implementation of the JCPOA in January, the IAEA said Iran "has not pursued the construction of the existing Arak heavy water research reactor" and has "not enriched uranium" above low levels. "Throughout the reporting period, Iran had no more than 130 metric tonnes of heavy water ... Iran's total (low) enriched uranium stockpile did not exceed 300 kg," the IAEA added. No enriched uranium has been accumulated through research and development activities. "All stored centrifuges and associated infrastructure have remained in storage under continuous Agency monitoring," the report noted out.
