Speaking on Thursday at the inauguration ceremony of the large national project, which has been done with the work of the Persian Gulf Petrochemical Company with an investment of $3.4 billion dollars, Dr Hassan Rouhani said, "It became clear to the entire world and the American people themselves that the miserable life of those who had conspired against our nation has ended, and everyone saw how anti-democratic and anti-parliamentary they were".

The President stated, "Just as one day the National Consultative Assembly of that time was bombarded by tyrants, these people sent mobs to the Congress at the end of their lives. They were like this from the beginning, but in the end, it became clear to everyone what crimes these terrorists committed against the American people and the people around the world".

The President said, "This huge project, which is unique in the Middle East, was inaugurated today by the children of this land and this nation and the engineers which was inaugurated in 2015 and 2016 as a result of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and helped us to export oil, and a large part of the oil money went to the National Development Fund, our of which we were able to spend to complete and operate this project".

Dr Rouhani added, "Some people think that all the money for oil sales is in the hands of the government, while 38% of oil revenues are transferred to the Development Fund and 14.5% of it is in the hands of the National Oil Company for the development and management of oil. We anticipate selling 2 million and 300 thousand barrels of oil per day".

The President further mentioned Khuzestan province as one of the most important provinces of the country in terms of oil and gas resources as well as in terms of agriculture and added, "Today, the good people of this province are witnessing the opening of a very large and important refinery project worth $3.4 billion".

The President described the plan to collect gas flares that pollute the air as one of the important environmental measures of this government and added, "I thank all the workers, engineers and managers for doing this great work".

Stating that part of our national power relies on energy, Dr Rouhani said, "Iran has a special and important position in the region in terms of energy resources and with 32 trillion cubic meters of gas, is the largest gas source in the world".

Referring to Iran's special position in the field of oil and gas, Dr Rouhani said, "The world needs Iranian oil and gas and one of the sources of national power is energy and we can be the hub of the region in the production and export of electricity and gas".

In another part of his speech, referring to the role of foreign policy, banks, technology, jihad and the efforts of young people and engineers in achieving the country's development plans and projects, the President said, "If it were not for foreign policy and if the JCPOA had not borne fruit in 2015, we would not have money in the NDFI to spend on the development of projects".

Dr Rouhani added, "With the oil money that we sold in 2015 to 2017 after the nuclear deal, we were able to import the equipment and parts needed by the refineries and we were able to achieve these huge projects. But some speak with bad language and may not be aware of how much foreign policy and diplomacy can play a role in the economy and production and in surging production".
