08:11, February 15, 2012

TEHRAN, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will unveil "some nuclear achievements" on Wednesday, Iran's presidential website announced on Tuesday.

"In the presence of the president, some new and worthwhile achievements of the country's nuclear scientists in the field of atomic energy will be unveiled" on Wednesday, the announcement said.

"The disclose of these achievements will display the extraordinary capability of Iranian young scientists and their nuclear knowledge to the world," the website said.

The projects will show Iran's adherence to the slogan of " nuclear energy for all and nuclear weapons for none," according to the announcement.

Ahmadinejad said Saturday 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 addressing a large crowd of people gathered at Tehran's Azadi Square on the occasion of the 33rd anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

On Sunday, local Mehr news agency quoted an informed source as saying that Fordo nuclear enrichment facility will become fully operational over the next few days.

Early in January, Iran's permanent representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali-Asghar Soltanieh said at the IAEA headquarters in Vienna that Iran had begun uranium enrichment at an underground bunker of the Fordo nuclear facility.

The Fordo nuclear plant has been built near the Iranian central Shi'ite holy city of Qom, which was used for producing up to 20 percent enriched uranium.
