Stating that it is difficult to choose someone who could be a good replacement for Mr Hojjati, Dr Rouhani said, "I hope that the Almighty rewards all those who serve the people".

Noting that Mr Hojjati had previously resigned due to political pressures and physical problems, the President said, "I accepted his resignation for the sake of his health, otherwise I was against it".

“As President of the eleventh and twelfth governments, I say that he was one of the few ministers of the cabinet and one of the great servants of the people,” he said, adding that he was a sincere man with faith, humility, ethics and hard work.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also went on to say, "May God bless him and make him more prosperous”.
