February 11, 2012
Iran will soon reveal “very big new achievements” in its controversial nuclear programme, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has announced.
Speaking at a rally in Tehran to mark the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic revolution, Ahmadinejad also said Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment progamme.
“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 broadcast on state television.
Tens of thousands of Iranians joined state-organised rallies across the country to mark the anniversary of the overthrow of Shah, who was largely reviled as a US puppet by his opponents.
