Iran, under United Nations sanctions for its nuclear program, said it ended a 36-year quest to join the club of atomic-powered nations when Russia’s Rosatom Corp. switched on a reactor along the Persian Gulf coast.

The start of the 1,000-megawatt power reactor near the southern city of Bushehr, makes Iran the first country in the Middle East with a nuclear-energy facility, freeing more of its fossil fuels for export.
