President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad chose a rally celebrating the 33rd anniversary of Iran’s Islamic Revolution to announce...an announcement. euronews reports...

"... President Ahmadinejad told the huge crowd in Azadi Square that, in the coming days, they and the world would hear some very important and very major announcements of nuclear achievements."

This, on the heels of a U.N. investigation into Iran’s nuclear program. But, Fars News Agency claims there’s nothing to hide, saying...

"Washington and its Western allies accuse Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program, while they have never presented any corroborative evidence to substantiate their allegations. Iran denies the charges and insists that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only."

A report from The Guardian details Iran’s explanation.

"[Iran] has said it is forced to manufacture nuclear fuel rods, which provide fuel for reactors, on its own since international sanctions ban it from buying them on foreign markets."

Also in his speech, Ahmadinejad fired verbal warnings to the West. According to BBC News...

"He also promised that Iran would never yield to the West if it continued to use ‘the language of force and insult’. Last week, President Barack Obama said the United States would work in ‘lockstep’ with Israel to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons."

Ahmadinejad didn’t elaborate on the nature of the nuclear announcement, but the scientific reporter for the Islamic Republic News Agency backs up the other peaceful claims, saying...

"... the achievements deal with scientific application of nuclear know-how to the betterment of life standard and augmenting level of food and agriculture products."

The Iranian president didn’t specify a date for the announcement.
