[RxPG] Tehran, April 9 - Officials of the Iranian Atomic Organization and Russian contractor Atomstroiexport resumed talks Monday at the Bushehr power plant in southern Iran, the news network Khabar reported.

The two sides discussed their differences and were eager to find ways to settle them but gave no further details, the TV report said.

Atomstroiexport, which is building the nuclear power plant in the Persian Gulf port Bushehr, had announced earlier this year that there would be a delay in the completion of the plant due to a financial dispute with Tehran.

Iran has rejected the claims and said all payments had been effected in time.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini Sunday voiced confidence that the differences would be settled during the talks in Iran.

The Iran-Russia joint project was originally supposed to be completed at the beginning of the millennium but has been delayed several times for various reasons.

The most recent agreement between the two sides signed last September in Moscow envisioned the supply of nuclear fuel in March 2007, the physical launch of the plant in September and energy launch in November of the same year.

Iran had warned Russia not to link the project with the international dispute over Iran's nuclear programme and in doing so 'politicize' the Bushehr plant.

Moscow has however said the Bushehr stoppage was a purely financial problem.
