Iran holds atomic fete with UN deadline looming | Top News | Reuters.com
TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran marks the 28th anniversary of its revolution on Sunday seeking to show a nation united over its nuclear policy, but Western pressure and cautious voices at home dampened prospects for a big statement on atomic progress.

Hundreds of thousands will march to Azadi (Freedom) square to hear a speech by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad around 10 a.m. (0630 GMT), who has said Iran would celebrate its nuclear achievements on the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution.

It prompted talk that Iran might say it had begun installing 3,000 centrifuges at its Natanz uranium enrichment facility, defying a December U.N. sanctions resolution which gave Tehran until February 21 to suspend enrichment or face more measures.

Iran already runs two cascades of 164 centrifuges at Natanz underground facility, but plans to install thousands of centrifuges and start “industrial-scale” enrichment.However, some officials have suggested that Tehran had no intention to take provocative steps such as announcing an expansion of atomic work to block a political solution to resolve the dispute.
