Speaking on Sunday at the session of the cabinet, Dr Hassan Rouhani said that the country is fighting on three fronts: the Arrogance, coronavirus and unemployment, adding, "Due to the great efforts of the people and officials, the cooperation of all pillars and the guidance of the Supreme Leader, economic figures at the end of year 1398 show that the enemies have failed to carry out the grand conspiracy they had designed to bring our economy and our people to their knees".

"In the field of fighting coronavirus, most of the provinces across the country are in the condition of controlling the disease, but unfortunately 5 provinces are in a red status and we have to go through this period," said the President.

Emphasising that coronavirus is still here and all people should continue to follow the instructions, the President said, "We have passed the peak in some provinces and we haven't had a second wave until today".

Dr Rouhani continued, "The peak of the first wave of coronavirus in some provinces was in March, April and May, and in some other provinces in June, and in some provinces this peak may be in July".

He added, "The Ministry of Health has developed and announced the necessary instructions for all businesses and provided them to the people, and any reopening that is done to fight unemployment and provide people's living must be carried out in accordance with the instructions".

Stating that the predictions were that we would have more critical and difficult conditions in 1398 due to the severe sanctions and the many pressures that were in 1397, the President said, "Fortunately, with the management, the efforts of the people and all officials, the cooperation of the three branches and all pillars of the country, and especially the guidance of the Supreme Leader, the economic figures show that the enemies failed in the great conspiracy they plotted against the country to bring the people and the economy of Iran to its knees".

He continued, "Statistics from the Central Bank show that we had relatively good conditions in the agricultural and industrial sectors, and these two sectors have led to the growth of the country's oil-free economy".

"The country's agricultural sector grew by 8.8% last year, and the industrial sector grew by 2.3%," said Rouhani, adding, "Sanctions have had a major impact on the oil sector, but have failed in other areas".

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran added, "Despite the conspiracies of the enemies, we are witnessing vitality and economic activity in all areas of the country".

Emphasising that the housing sector needs new mobility, Dr Rouhani said, "In the meeting of the government's economic board on the issue of housing, we made decisions that will be completed in the future and we will try to provide the land to those who are active in this area".

"The government has not given up on housing and will take steps to alleviate people's problems," said Dr Hassan Rouhani.

The President praised all the knowledge-based companies and science and technology parks that were active these days in meeting the country's health, medical and treatment needs, especially in the field of fighting coronavirus, and said, "Knowledge-based companies can make a great scientific transformation in the country and meet the needs through technology".

In another part of his speech, Dr Rouhani referred to the Iranian people's fight against US conspiracies, especially in recent years and months and at the same time with the spread of coronavirus in the world, saying, "Americans are involved in a conflict with all international institutions in recent months. Of course, this was the case from the beginning. They stood against UNESCO regarding the weather conditions, and have recently begun threatening the World Health Organisation and the International Criminal Court".

The president continued, "It is clear that the framework for governing the country is constant conspiring, both in terms of disease and freedom for the American people, and in terms of the rights of other nations and international organisations. Of course, the Americans have always failed in this regard".

"The US government is threatening the IAEA Board of Governors and the Security Council, but we are confident that our diplomats will stand up well to the United States and will not allow the Americans to succeed," continued Rouhani.

Dr Rouhani continued, "The lift of the arms embargo on this year's October is one of the achievements of the JCPOA, and if the Americans want to undermine this achievement, other major countries know what our reaction will be".

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran added, "We hope that all member states of the Board of Governors and the Security Council are aware of the US' plans".

"Unfortunately, the Americans are still sabotaging Iran's request for the $5-billion loan from the International Monetary Fund, and we hope that they do not yield to America's pressure and fulfil their obligations to all countries," he said.

At the beginning of the meeting, Dr Rouhani expressed his condolences on the martyrdom of Imam Sadiq (AS) and said, "It is an honour for all of us to follow the school of Imam Sadiq (AS)".
