Iran is soon to reveal “great” nuclear achievements, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Saturday, speaking at the 1979 Islamic Revolution on February 11.

"In the coming days the world will witness Iran's announcement of its very important and very major nuclear achievements," he told a crowd of tens of thousands Iranians who gathered at Tehran’s Azadi Square.

Without giving any further details, he promised Iran would never end its controversial uranium enrichment programme.

Hamas Prime Minister of Gaza Ismail Haniyeh told the crowd of some 30,000 people, many of which were carrying placards declaring "Death to America" and "Death to Israel", that Hamas "will never recognize Israel."

The West, led by the US, is accusing Iran of developing the nuclear weapons behind its uranium enriching programme, but Teheran denies it, insisting it has entirely peaceful purposes.

As the dispute grows, the West is tightening its sanctions in an attempt to force Iran to get back to the negotiations: the EU is to ban Iranian oil imports by July and to freeze the assets of Iran's central bank, and the US decided to freeze the Iranian government assets, including transactions by the Iranian Central Bank.

The United States and Israel have not excluded a possibility of military action if sanctions fail. President Barack Obama said Washington would work in "lockstep" with Israel to prevent Iran developing nuclear weapons, assessing Israel was "rightly" very concerned about Iran's nuclear programme.
