Thursday inaugurations a sign that Iran is alive/ Our enemies have not yet understood the power of the Great Iran/ Today, it’s P5+1’s turn to fulfil its duties; every day it is delayed is to their detriment
Referring to the 60th inauguration of the country's national plans with the slogan of 'Prudence and Hope for Surge in Production' campaign, the president said, "The inaugurations on every Thursday show that Iran is alive and our enemies have not yet understood the power of the Great Iran."
Speaking on Thursday at the inauguration ceremony of 5 national projects of the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade, Dr Hassan Rouhani referred to the coincidence of the inauguration of national industrial and mining projects with the Islamic Republic Day, and said, "February 1 and the day of the Islamic Republic is the highest fruit of the best tree in the history of the country".
Dr Rouhani mentioned the republic, Islam and Iran as the three pillars and the main pillars of the Islamic Republic and emphasised, "We must take good care of these three pillars and preserve the republic, Islam and Iran".
Stating that we will continue the path of production, development, ethics and constructive interaction until the end, he said, "The description of what was inaugurated during this period has been published in two volumes of books".
The President continued, "The nature of the confrontation and the positions of the enemies of this nation show that they do not have a correct and accurate knowledge of the greatness and power of this nation".
"If they did, when the Supreme Leader explicitly stated that Iran would also return to its obligations if the Americans do, they should have used it and did not hesitate to use this opportunity for even an hour," he said.
Pointing out that the performance of the new US administration also shows that they do not know the strong and resilient nation of Iran, Dr Rouhani said, "The Iranian nation will overcome the problems and with the efforts of its experts and the medical staff in the new year, it will carry out extensive vaccination of imported and domestic vaccines, and will also overcome COVID-19, fulfilling this year's slogan of supporting and removing barriers to production with double power".
Dr Rouhani further pointed out, "If it were not for petrochemicals and mining industries, we would have faced problems in year 1399 for providing the currency needed by the country".
The President continued his speech by stating that Iran continued to fulfil its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) one year after the violation of the death by the Americans, adding, "This is a moral, political and historical honour for the Iranian nation, and those who consider the deal as one of the greatest international agreements and are proud of it know that in the last 3 years it has been Iran that has maintained the JCPOA and borne its burden".
Dr Rouhani emphasised, "Those who are discussing who should return to their obligations first, Iran or the United States, should know that it was Iran that adhered to all its obligations one year after the withdrawal of the United States and today, after 3 years, we announce that once the Americans return to fulfilling their obligations, Iran will immediately fulfil all its obligations as well".
At the end of his speech, the President said, "Today, it is the P5+1 and the Americans' turn to carry out their duties and they should know that every day that they abide by the law, regulations and UN Security Council Resolution 2231 sooner, it will benefit themselves and the world".
