Rouhani addresses Iranians on revolution anniversary

Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 11

By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has addressed the people of Iran in a televised speech on the occasion of the 37th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Rouhani said that with the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, aka nuclear deal) Iran managed to eliminate the "Iranophobia" project and the world now understands that Iranians are a peaceful and rational nation, Iran's state TV channel IRINN reported Feb. 11.

He also called for achieving progress in the country and said the global powers had understood that the Iranian system isn't a temporary government.

Speaking about the recent trips of the presidents of Russia and China to Tehran, Rouhani underlined that significant agreements were signed during those visits.

Rouhani also touched upon his own trip to Europe and said that important contracts were signed during his visit.

Calling for the development of the country, he underlined the need to attract foreign investment and technology saying "we will build Iran".

"We are capable of competing with the world in terms of economy and industry," he added.

Rouhani further called for cooperation with international community to advance the country's industry and added that a way has been paved for cooperating.

The president also said Iranians are hardworking and educated, and the country has a large young workforce.

Further criticizing the country's aged aviation and transportation system, Rouhani said Iranians don't deserve a worn-out transportation fleet.

"Our people deserve the best aviation, railway and ground fleet," he added.

He also called for unity among the Iranian political groups and called for preparing a national plan aimed at developing the country, calling it the "JCPOA 2".

He also spoke about the plans for economic development in Iran, saying that in order to reach the planned economic growth of eight percent Iran needs to attract at least $30 billion of foreign investment.

The president further touched upon the achievements of his government in the past two years, adding that sweet gas production in Iran has recently increased by 190 million cubic meters per day.

He also said the country has increased oil extraction from joint fields from 69,000 barrels per day in the past to 110,000 barrels per day as of today.

Rouhani added that this figure will reach 230,000 barrels per day by March 21, while it is projected to stand at 350,000 barrels per day by the end of his term in office.

He further touched upon Iran's income from petrochemicals, saying that in the past the country earned $16 million from petrochemicals, which has increased to $18 million in the current Iranian year, which started March 21, 2015.

The president also predicted that the income from petrochemicals would reach $24 million by the end of his term.

"Power production has increased by 5,000 megawatts (MW), reaching 74,000 MW from 69,000 MW over the past two and a half years," he added.

Further during his address, the president said 270,000 hectares of agricultural lands have been equipped with modern irrigation technologies.

Rouhani also said that during his term in office, 11 million people in Iran have been covered with insurance.

"The next year will be the year of prosperity and progress for the Iranian nation," Rouhani concluded.
