Clinton: 'We love Bushehr, we're concerned about places we don't know about'

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced on Tuesday that the Obama administration is not at all concerned by the Iranian nuclear facility at Bushehr. It's Natanz and Qom (and what else that they don't know about) that are of concern.
"Our problem is not with their reactor at Bushehr, our problem is with their facilities at places like Natanz and their secret facility at Qom and other places where we believe they are conducting their weapons program," Clinton stated while addressing reporters at a meeting with Austria's foreign minister.

Iranian authorities began injecting uranium fuel rods into the core of the Bushehr nuclear power plant on Tuesday, Iranian Press TV reported.

According to the report, the nuclear plant will become operational once all 163 fuel rods have been injected into the plant's core, and it should begin generating electricity in early 2011.

On Monday, an Iranian lawmaker declared Iran's intent to continue with its nuclear program despite international concern.

"Despite all efforts and policies of America and the European Union to put sanctions on Iran, the fuel of the Bushehr power plant will be loaded into its core tomorrow," Iranian MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi was quoted as saying by official media.

Boroujerdi is the head of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy committee.
