President Rouhani has called on everyone to redouble their efforts to actualize harmony and unanimity between people and the government.
In his first Cabinet meeting in the New Year, President Hassan Rouhani called on everyone to redouble their efforts to actualize the New Year’s motto of ‘Harmony and Unanimity’ between people and the government.
Recalling the designation by the Supreme Leader of the New Year as “The Year of Harmony and Unanimity between the Government and People”, President Rouhani said, “There must always be harmony and unanimity between the government and people as the true owners of the country.”
Rouhani called constructive criticism as another form of support for the government and said anyone who criticizes for the sole reason of improving the conditions is in fact demonstrating support.
“Last year, the anti-Iranian sanctions continued, oil prices dropped drastically and the region suffered from insecurity and instability, despite all these hardships, statistics show the performance of the country has been hopeful,” said Rouhani, referring to the country’s 20 percent budget growth, and a relative stability in Iran’s economy.
Rouhani also called for a boost in domestic production in the New Year.
