Azerbaijan, Baku, Nov. 1 / Trend T.Konyayeva, D.Khatinoglu/
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has called the parliament and the government to unity to oppose the country's enemies, IRNA reported.
Ahmadinejad stressed that nothing should weaken the solidarity of Iranians.
"We cooperate fully with the Iranian judiciary to fight against embezzlements and make economic processes transparent," he said.
Ahmadinejad attended today the open parliamentary session to speak in favor of Economy and Finance Minister Shamseddin Hosseini who face impeachment threat.
The Iranian parliament has begun today the impeachment of Economy and Finance Minister.
In mid-October, twenty-two members of the Iranian Parliament have signed a draft document to impeach Minister of Economy and Finance and submitted the issue to the parliament's presidium.
MPs accused Hosseini of not providing a control over banks and other financial institutions, abuse of power and improper performance of relevant functions.
Iran's parliament started debates on impeachment of Hosseini on Sept. 30 after obtaining new documents related a $2.8 billion fraud scandal, which is described as Iran's biggest case of embezzlement ever.
According to the documents, Iranian Bank Saderat, Bank Melli, Tat Bank, the Central Bank of Iran and the Economy Ministry were involved in the financial scandal.
Following the scandal, a number of Iran's top financial officials, including the heads of Bank Saderat, Melli and Tourism resigned.
