Japanese Ambassador to Iran Akio Shirota proposed Monday that Iran and Japan jointly build quake- resistant nuclear power plants in Iran, the official IRNA news agency reported.

The Japanese ambassador made the remarks when meeting with Head of Iran's Majlis (Parliament) National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi on Monday.

Shirota said he hoped the two countries to cooperate on the construction of quake-resistant nuclear power plants in Iran, according to IRNA.

Boroujerdi, for his part, welcomed the idea, saying the Islamic Republic of Iran, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is ready to cooperate with Japan on such projects.

Boroujerdi said the expansion of cooperation in economy and industry, and the implementation of joint projects in the field of energy will serve the interests of both nations, and will help restore sustainable peace and tranquillity in the region.

Earlier in July, Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi said that the country's first Bushehr nuclear power plant is to become operational in the Iranian month of Shahrivar (August 23 to September 22), according to IRNA.
