Speaking on Monday in the 76th move of 'Prudence and Hope for Surge in Production' campaign and inauguration of national knowledge-based projects of the Vice Presidency for Science and Technology Affairs, Dr Hassan Rouhani referred to the importance of the role and position of knowledge-based companies in the development of the country and said, "Development and progress of the country in the future is based on the knowledge-based economy, and this is the way we can reduce our distance from developed countries".

At the beginning of his speech, the President commemorated the anniversary of the explosion of the office of the Islamic Republican Party on 28 June 1981 and the commemoration of Martyr Beheshti and his 72 companions and said, "The enemies thought that this explosion would mark the end of the Islamic Republic, but we saw how the blood of these loved ones, like all the martyrs of history, was able to create a new movement in society".

Stating that the blood of the martyrs of the 28 June established the path and thought that Martyr Beheshti and his noble companions had for the right path of the revolution, Dr Rouhani added, "It was the greatness of the late Imam Khomeini (RA) who did not allow such events to affect the path of the revolution".

The President also stated, "Martyr Beheshti was one of the thinkers who established a path for science and knowledge and organising the organisation and generation of scholars of seminaries before 1961 and continued until the victory of the revolution and after the revolution, and I hope we can continue his path".

Dr Rouhani described the knowledge-based projects inaugurated in today's ceremony very valuable and important in the path of sustainable development of the country and specified, "Iran has long been a country of science and knowledge in various fields, including astronomy, and it was necessary at this historical juncture to create a new movement in the country in this direction".

The President pointed out, "The construction of the National Observatory had started 20 years ago, which was accelerated in the government of Prudence and Hope, and 70% of its construction and operations have been carried out in the Twelfth Government".
