Arrangements Made for Supply of Basic Commodities: Iranian President

The outgoing president of Iran said activities by his administration have eased the burden on his successor in the provision of basic commodities.

President Hassan Rouhani said at an economic meeting on Tuesday that his administration has made all arrangements with realistic evaluations to ensure a steady supply of basic commodities despite the economic problems caused by the coronavirus restrictions, rise in the global prices, and reduced production in the wake of drought.

In spite of all troubles, especially the obstacles posed by the COVID outbreak and the economic war, the administration will not allow its successor to face any problem in the provision of basic commodities at the beginning of its tenure, he pledged.

Pointing to the promising signs of defeat of the enemy in its economic war and the removal of cruel sanctions against the Iranian nation, Rouhani said the release of Iran’s blocked resources that have been unjustly and illegally frozen in other countries will mark the fruitfulness of the Iranian nation’s resistance against the economic war.

Last week, the president highlighted his administration’s success in dealing with the foreign sanctions in an unequal battle, urging that his successor should be informed of the economic conditions and the measures taken during his tenure to settle the problems.

Ebrahim Raeisi, the incumbent Judiciary Chief of Iran, has won the June 18 presidential election by a landslide.

The president-elect had announced in his electoral campaign that he has set an agenda for securing the removal of the sanctions imposed on the Iranian nation, emphasizing the need for the country’s economy to be fortified in the face of sanctions or any other shock that may hit.
