Pointing to the diverse aspects of cyberspace administration in the country, the president emphasized that in light of the current circumstances, a national cyberspace center, "as a centralized policy-making and major decision-making authority in hardware [and] software [issues] and protection against internet evils," can prove quite effective.

He also pointed to the high status of the cyberspace and stressed the important role it plays in the lives of individuals as well as the society at large.
