Monday April 9 is Iran’s national nuclear technology day and President Ahmadinejad who will be visiting Natanz uranium enrichment facilities that day is expected to mark the occasion by announcing the “good news” on Iran’s nuclear program.
Ahmadinejad will confirm the launch of 3,000 uranium enrichment centrifuges at Natanz despite repeated ultimatums from the UN Security Council to suspend the enrichment program. Chief nucler negotiator Ali Larijani announced on Thursday that there would be no freeze on enrichment activities.
Iran’s startup of 3,000 centrifuges will subject the country to a new round of economic sanctions at the UN. It will also strengthen the possibilities of military actions by the West against the nuclear and military installations.
