Iran says nuke program is near complete
(AP) - President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday said Iran would soon celebrate completion of its controversial nuclear fuel program.
"With the wisdom and resistance of the nation, today our position has stabilized. I'm very hopeful that we will be able to hold the big celebration of Iran's full nuclearization in the current year," the hard-line president told reporters during a press conference.
Iran's current calendar year ends on March 20, reports Trend.
The hard-line president also claimed that international community was caving it to Tehran's demand for a nuclear program. He did not elaborate.
The U.S. and some of its allies allege that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. But Tehran claims its program is peaceful and for generating electricity.
