Iran's hard-line president said Wednesday that he would declare a "day of national celebration" if sanctions were imposed on his country, state television reported. "The day sanctions are imposed on Iran by its enemies, would be a day of national celebration for the Iranian nation," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was quoted as telling supporters in Robat Karim, a town in south of Tehran. The five permanent members of the UN Security Council plan to start working on UN sanctions against Iran next week, diplomats and officials have said.
