Iran to unveil great nuclear achievements

Mr Ahmadinejad was speaking at a rally in Tehran as Iranians marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad did not elaborate on the announcement – but insisted Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment process KHAAMA reported.

Mr Ahmadinejad was speaking at a rally in Tehran as Iranians marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

He also promised that Iran would never yield to the West if it continued to use “the language of force and insult”.

The West suspects Iran’s nuclear program is aimed at producing atomic weapons, a charge Tehran denies, insisting it’s geared for peaceful purposes only, such as energy production.

Last week, President Barack Obama said the United States would work in “lockstep” with Israel to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons.

He said Israel’s government was “rightly” very concerned about Iran’s nuclear programme but added that he did not believe it had decided whether to launch a military strike.

But Iran insists it is designed for peaceful purposes only, such as energy production.

Addressing a rally of tens of thousands of Iranians in Tehran yesterday, Ahmadinejad said: ‘Within the next few days the world will witness the inauguration of several big new achievements in the nuclear field.’

He said Iran was prepared to stage fresh talks over its nuclear programme, but added that Tehran ‘will never enter talks if enemies behave arrogantly’.

Four rounds of U.N. sanctions and recent tough financial penalties by the United States and the European Union have failed to get Iran to halt aspects of its atomic work that could provide a possible pathway to weapons production.

Iran refuses to negotiate over its uranium enrichment programme, but Western countries say there is no point in talking unless it is on the agenda.
