Iran marks 33rd anniversary of Islamic revolution (2)


09:52, February 12, 2012

This was Salehi's second confirmation in two days of Iran's determination to counter the Western pressure concerning Tehran's nuclear issue.

"Our nation should know that the Islamic Republic of Iran takes these threats seriously and we are prepared in every respect and have plans for the worst case scenarios. But we know that nothing will happen," Salehi said Friday.

He said that Iran will announce new nuclear achievements in the coming weeks, stressing the importance of confidence building between the West and Iran over Tehran's atomic case.

"They should trust us and we will take the required measures within the framework of our nuclear safeguards," he said.

Salehi said Friday that it is possible that nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany (G5+1) are to be held in the near future.

On Saturday, the Iranian president hailed Iran's achievements in diverse scientific areas including space technology and medicine and called as "successful" Iran's economic programs in the past years.

He also said that Iran will announce new "big" nuclear achievements in days.

"In the following days, the world will witness the inauguration of several big achievements in nuclear fields," he said.

On Saturday, the visiting Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, addressing the crowd in Tehran's Azadi square, congratulated the Iranian nation and government on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution and said that Iranians play a role in constructing a bright future for the Palestinians.

On the day, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) displayed a maquette of the downed U.S. RQ-170 stealth aircraft on Tehran's Azadi square.

In December 2011, Iranian media reported that the Iranian military downed the U.S. RQ-170 stealth aircraft in the eastern part of the country after finding it transgressing the eastern border.
