Iran will unveil 112 "very important" achievements in nuclear technology next month, Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi has announced.
"The unveiling of these achievements under the country's current circumstances will convey this message to the US and those enemies of Iran – that the Iranian nation has resisted economic sanctions and has turned threats into opportunities," Kamalvandi said, speaking to reporters in Tehran on Saturday.
According to the official, the achievements will include new homegrown breakthroughs in power plant, fuel cycle, laser, exploration and other technologies.
Kamalvandi accused the United States of waging an "economic war" against Iran, saying that Washington was putting "pressure on all of its allies and non-allies to stop their economic relations with Iran."
"However, the Iranian nation will strongly pass this phase as well," Kamalvandi said, saying that Iran would need to make use of its capabilities to counter and neutralise US pressure.
The official's remarks echoed sentiment expressed by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei last week, with Khamenei calling on Iranians to engage in a "maximum mobilisation" to withstand "enemies' hostile pressures" and defeat US sanctions.
President Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the JCPOA in May 2018, prompting the treaty's other signatories, including Russia, China and its European signatories, to scramble to try to save it. These efforts have focused on measures to bypass stringent US sanctions, as well as US threats to bring Iranian oil exports down "to zero."
