Mahmud Jafari, the manager of the Bushehr Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP) and deputy head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), said on July 5 that Iran had brought the BNPP back into operation a day earlier after fixing a fault in it its 1,000-megawatt reactor. Iran had shut down the BNPP, the country's only nuclear power plant, following the unspecified "technical fault" that the AEOI first mentioned publicly on June 20.
