Accordingly, the Ministries of Industry, Agriculture Jihad, Information and Justice, as well as Tazirat Organisation are obliged to implement the system of distribution and monitoring of commodity prices within the framework of this program and in coordination with each other.

Dr Hassan Rouhani mentioned the field presence of supervisors and the creation of transparency in the form of a comprehensive system in the field of distribution and pricing as among the current needs for price control and said, "The government is determined to continue this program despite all restrictions, and deliver basic goods to the consumer at the set price at a preferential rate".

Dr Rouhani described the cooperation and coordination of the judiciary and trade unions to control prices to be of special importance.

The President went on to point out that the dimensions of the economic war imposed by the United States on the Iranian people and the resistance in this war in the current situation, saying, "As the more precise dimensions of the imposed war became clear years later, the scope of the economic war imposed on the country will become clearer to the people in the future".

Dr Rouhani also stated that the Iranian nation, after decades of hostility of the United States, has no expectations other than what it does today, and added, "This nation does not expect countries that inadvertently accompany these sanctions to participate in US anti-humanitarian actions".

Referring to the effective measures taken by the relevant agencies, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the legal institutions of the government and the Central Bank to realise the rights of the Iranian people, the President called for increased and more comprehensive efforts to release the country's blocked foreign exchange reserves.
