'Absent' Ahmadinejad to address nation next week: media

"Ahmadinejad will speak to the nation next week, and his comments are going to please the friends of the revolution and despair the enemies of the regime," several newspapers reported the vice-president in charge of parliamentary affairs, Mohammad Reza Mir-Tajedini, as saying.

Mir-Tajedini's comments however have not been confirmed by Iran's state media, which have so far not commented on Ahmadinejad's absence from public events
