At the ceremony that was held on Tuesday, President Hassan Rouhani congratulated the New Year to the Iranian people in advance and appreciated the hard work of doctors and medical staff for fighting coronavirus in these days.

Parts of President Hassan Rouhani's speech at the ceremony is as follows:

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

I would like to thank all people who have worked in the process of constructing this freeway. Phases 2 and 3 of the freeway that has just been opened had a progress of 3 per cent when this government took office, and 97 per cent of it has been done during these six years.

 This motorway is very important. For years, people who were travelling in this freeway used to see a sign telling them that the motorway had ended and they had to turn left and change route.

God-willing, from the day after tomorrow, that means from Thursday, this route will be opened on people and the red sign will be removed, which will make the people of Tehran and Karaj happy.

We have to thank the people of Alborz Province. In general, we have opened three important projects in the recent three months, one of which was Hashtgerd Metro station, the second one the Tehran-Shomal Freeway, which displays the Iranian construction industry's power, and the third one is this project which has been opened nearing the New Year.

Thank-God, people get to use this road in year 1399.

Some of the 7 important projects that they explained here will be opened in the year 1399 as well.

It was announced that approximately 10 trillion tomans has been spent on this freeway, and the current value of these freeways is 25 trillion tomans, which is a very good asset for our dear people.

I feel obliged to use every opportunity to thank the hard work of doctors and medical staff for fighting coronavirus in these days.

These hard days will pass and this grief will end, and God-willing, we will put these hard days behind us with the help of doctors and people.

This year, our body is far from holy shrines and we cannot make pilgrimage to them in person, but our souls get nearer to them every year.

God-willing, He will help us. Our people have always endured hard times and will put these hard days behind it.

I would like to thank the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, the corporation that worked for building this road, the Governorate Generals of Alborz and Tehran Provinces and municipalities for carrying out this project.

I would also like to congratulate Nowruz to the entire Iranian nation, the people who are tired of these tough days of coronavirus outbreak, and wish them happy new year.

Wassalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh
