Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Saturday that his country would soon
announce “very important” achievements in the nuclear field, state TV reported.
He was speaking on the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic revolution. Tens of thousands of Iranians joined state-organized rallies across the country to mark the occasion.
Demonstrators carrying Iranian flags and pictures of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei chanted “Death to Israel” and “Death to America”.
“In the coming days the world will witness Iran’s announcement of its very important and very major nuclear achievements,” Ahmadinejad told a crowd at Tehran’s Azadi (Freedom) Square in a speech relayed live on state television.
He gave no details.
“The world should know that despite all pressures, Iran will not withdraw one inch from its principles and (nuclear) rights,” he said.
