Iran will soon unveil "big new" nuclear achievements, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said today. He did not elaborate but insisted that Iran would never give up its uranium enrichment. Ahmadinejad spoke at a rally in Tehran as tens of thousands of Iranians marked the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution that brought Islamic clerics to power.
"Within the next few days the world will witness the inauguration of several big new achievements in the nuclear field," he said. Despite the bluster, he reiterated Tehran's readiness to revive talks with the West over the country's nuclear program. "Iran is ready for talks within the framework of equality and justice," he said, adding that Tehran "will never enter talks if enemies behave arrogantly."
