Earlier on Monday, an Iranian lawmaker declared Iran's intent to continue with its nuclear program despite international concern.

"Despite all efforts and policies of America and the European Union to put sanctions on Iran, the fuel of the Bushehr power plant will be loaded into its core tomorrow," Iranian MP Alaeddin Boroujerdi was quoted as saying by official media.

Boroujerdi is the head of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy committee.

News agencies in Iran also stated that celebrations would be held to mark Tuesday's event.
