President Ahmadinejad unveiled the other nuclear achievements on Wednesday.According to the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, the fuel rods have been domestically produced at Isfahan nuclear facility (Natanz) and loaded into the Tehran Research Reactor, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors.

In this ceremony, several radio-pharmaceuticals made by Iranian experts were unveiled by Ahmadinejad, as well.

Iran's Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi and Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Fereydoun Abbasi accompanied President Ahmadinejad.

These achievements have been announced while Western powers are trying to increase forces on Iran by sanctions.
