People’s ruined furniture must be supplied by production sector/ Flood losses colossal, but benefits more/ Anybody sowing despair acting against divine religion
President described housing those who have lost their houses during the floods as a top priority for the government added, The reconstruction process must be accelerated to save people from the problems they have.
Speaking on Saturday evening at the coordination meeting of Disaster Management Taskforce of Khuzestan Province, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, We are proud of all armed and popular forces, the EMS and all those who rushed to help people in the floodhit areas.
I have no doubt that the people of Iran will pass this test successfully and the government will be alongside people with all its might and facilities, he said.
The President also added, For many years, the West has been announcing by their sanctions and propaganda that drought will destroy Iran, explicitly stating that Lake Urmia will be vanished.
In this year's spring, God showed the imperialism and Zionism that this is not the case, said the President.
He also referred to the floods in Aqqala and Pol Dokhtar and said, When these cities were surrounded by the floods, I had a very hard night and I was in constant contact with officials.
In the recent incident, public services did not stop for even a day and the government is beside people with all its facilities, he said.
The President also went on to say, Without a doubt, if we stand together, we can resolve all problems easily.
Stating the hot days of summer are coming, he said, Living in this situation will be very hard for those who have suffered losses and living in shelters, so those who do not have houses must be put on priority.
People should know that their losses will be compensated, no matter how much they are, said Rouhani.
He continued, The disaster management taskforce is under the command of the Interior Minister, as the Supreme Leader has stressed that only one person should be in command.
He added, The armed forces, nongovernmental institutions and all bodies need to take to the stage.
The President went on to commemorate Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani and said, During the Sacred Defence era, I used to come to Ahvaz with Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani. He enjoyed working for the country's prosperity.
The enemies of the Revolution and the people of Iran are working hard to sow the seeds of despair to make people tired, so that Iran would never be a model for regional countries, added Rouhani.
