Tehran, Iran, Feb.17


While Iran is facing obstacles due to the US sanctions, some believe the country's oil exports have been considerable.

"Iran’s oil exports are in considerable volumes despite the US sanctions and today, many developed countries are interested in economic cooperation with Iran," said the member of the parliament Ghasem Jasemi in an interview with Trend.

Iran’s Supreme Leader has recently issued a statement on the 40th anniversary of Islamic revolution describing the future path of the country as a "big jihad to build the great Islamic Iran."

Referring to the economic aspects of the statement, he said the Supreme Leader has repeatedly insisted that the country should not be dependent on oil and it’s necessary to improve Iran’s economy by using the domestic capacities.

The MP added that despite some claims about economic crisis in Iran, the oil exports are currently at the remarkable level and many developed countries need to cultivate economic ties with Iran.

However, he noted that during the recent months, there have been problems in livelihood of people caused by the domestic mismanagement.

“As the Supreme Leader stated, we need economic reform and employ the young people in management. All the public organizations need to have truthful cooperation with each other to end the current situation.”
