Azerbaijan, Baku, Feb. 11 / Trend S.Isayev, T. Jafarov/

Iranian nation in the past 33 years have had achievements that today can be presented to the humanity and the world, country's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said live, addressing the people at the rally on Tehran's Azadi Square, Press TV reported.

Rallies began throughout Iran on the weekend to mark the 33rd anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

Ahmadinejad noted that some of the Iranian nation's achievements are unique independence, integrity, dignity, courage and self-reliance.

"Despite hard times, and pressure from the enemies we have achieved progress especially in recent years. We've witnessed hostility, however our achievements have increased," the president noted.

Later Ahmadinejad noted the spheres in which Iran has gained significant achievements.

"Country has witnessed progress in scientific field, as prior to the Islamic Revolution there were 300 scientific articles published in Iran annually. Today, this figure is close to 12 000 articles," he said.

The president also spoke about Iran's achievements in nanotechnology, medicine and biotechnology.

"Six years ago in Nanotechnology we were on 37th spot in the world, and today we are on 14th. In biotechnology sphere we used to be on 33rd position, and today we are on 14th in the world, and first in the region," Ahmadinejad underscored.

Speaking of medicine, the president said that "local medicine saw progress as well, since a lot of people visit Iran for treatment".

"In five-six years, our position in these spheres will be even stronger," Ahmadinejad added.

Regarding the airspace sector progress, Ahmadinejad mentioned domestically-manufactured satellites, launching pad, and land control stations.

Several days ago Iran successfully launched its domestically-built Navid-e Elm-o Sanat satellite into orbit by a decree issued by Ahmadinejad.

The satellite launch was timed to the Fajr celebrations and Iran's national day of space technology. According to Iranian officials, the launched satellite is a 50 kg Navid-e Elm-o Sanat microsatellite, with a built-in computer system that can be remotely controlled from Earth.

Iran's aerospace officials had previously spoken of the 2012 launch of Zafar (Triumph) - another satellite that weighs 90 kilograms and is scheduled to revolve around the globe in an elliptical orbit of 500 kilometers.

Iran's first domestically-produced satellite Omid (Hope) was launched into space in 2009. Iran is one of the 24 founding members of the United Nations' Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, which was set up in 1959.
