A Russian engineer who worked on Iran’s Bushehr nuclear power plant during the final stages of construction says inexperienced workers, poor oversight and layers of bureaucracy contributed to a rash of equipment failures that delayed the reactor’s startup for almost a year.

A U.S. expert said the engineer’s account added to concerns about the long-term safety of the Middle East’s first nuclear power station, for years a source of tension between Iran and the United States.
