Russia RIA news agency is reporting that Iran will load domestically made nuclear fuel rods into a research reactor in Tehran, a move designed to show that that Western sanctions are failing to halt Iran’s technical capability. “Fuel elements, for the first time created by Iranian scientists, will in the presence of the president … be loaded into the Tehran research reactor,” Ali Bagheri, deputy secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told RIA. On Saturday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran would soon announce new advances in its nuclear program.
