Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard will hold missile-defense exercises today and the next several days on the heels of revelations it has built a clandestine underground uranium-enrichment facility.
The announcement comes as President Obama was reportedly set to demand that inspectors be allowed within three months to examine the sites.
But Iranian vice president Ali Akbar Salehi, speaking on state television yesterday, refused to set a timetable for inspections.
"Inspection will be within the framework of the regulations. We will announce the date of the inspection later," Salehi said.
Iranian officials said the uranium-enrichment plant should be up and running within 18 months.
The exercises will last several days and take place in various locations. (source NY Post)
