Atomic Energy Agency
The Atomic Energy Agency (Sazeman-e Energy Atomi) is among the small number of executive branch agencies in Iran that report directly to the President. Following the August 1997 inauguration of President Khatami, Oil Minister Gholamreza Aghazadeh was appointed to head the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, replacing Reza Amrollahi, who was widely regarded as incompetent. Aghazadeh soon announced plans to enlarge Iran's civilian nuclear program, to include the purchase of several new reactors following the completion of the reactor at Bushehr. The new order reportedly includes another 1000MWe unit and two 440 MWe units from Russia to be located at Bushehr, and two 300 MWe units from China, possibly to be located at Darkhovin.
