Speaking on Monday at the opening ceremony of mining, steel, water and power projects in Kerman Province, President Hassan Rouhani said, "Today, we are not only satisfying our own needs in dam construction, but also possess executive power in this great technology at regional and global levels".

"If it were not for the dams constructed in recent years, this year's floods that affected 25 provinces would put people's lives in risk," he continued.

The President added, "We used to import power plant equipment and we could not build one, but today, we are constructing power plants for ourselves and regional states. This means progress".

Dr Rouhani continued, "In the field of steel, we have become powerful and we are able to build factories that may need only 10 to 20 per cent help from foreign countries".

"In the field of railroads and carriages, we used to rely on outside, but we have made great progress in the recent years," he added.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say, "One of the policies of the Government of Prudence and Hope is supporting the rail industry, and today, we possess power in the rail system and this is a national honour".

"Today, we are at a level in the field of air defence that one very important Asian country said, "We are proud that you Iranian Muslims have been able to build a missile that can destroy an American drone"," continued the President.

Dr Rouhani said, "Great work has been done in the field of petroleum and gas industry, and we are reaching new self-sufficiencies every day in petrochemicals, exploration and refineries".

He added, "Today, we have no problem supplying our needed gas in different seasons, and we are even exporting gas to Turkey and Iraq in winter".

"Some think that if they say we have not made any progress in the power industry, they are undermining the government, but this power industry belongs to the entire country," he said.

The President continued, "In the process of exploring uranium mines, we have explored big, rich mines in Kerman, Yazd and Sistan and Baluchistan provinces".

Stating that if we do not follow modern technology, we will fall behind, Dr Rouhani said, "Today, artificial intelligence is very popular in many affairs, and the Internet is a great tool for social and economic developments".

He continued, "Future life will not be like today, in a way that one cannot recognise today's world in 20 years".

Dr Rouhani said, "If we persist in past ideas, it will be to our detriment. One must not move slowly or they will fall behind today's world".

Referring to the work done in the field of National Information System, he said, "Every day, 10 new villages as connected to this system".

 "If we do not know how to behave in the world of politics, we will defame our country and undermine its power, development and welfare," said Rouhani.

He continued saying that building cases is not a skill, but investigating it is important, adding, "We have to be friends and brothers with each other, because we are citizens of the same country and nation, and we are servants of God".
