Congratulating the arrival of the month of Sha'ban, the President said, "The implementation of the huge project to transfer water from the Persian Gulf and the ​​Oman Sea to the central plateau and eastern regions of the country has other achievements in addition to providing a platform for the development of the country".

"Our country's young generation have become self-sufficient in knowledge-based companies in the construction of pumps required for these water transmission lines," he said.

Referring to the study history of this huge national project, Dr Rouhani stated, "Environmental experts were concerned that the return of wastewater of the desalination plants to the Persian Gulf would cause damage to the environment, therefore, we planned to transfer the wastewater of the plants to the Oman Sea without any environmental hazards".

The President stressed that the southern littoral countries of the Persian Gulf have been extracting water from the Persian Gulf for many years, and stressed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should seriously pursue the implementation of environmental considerations by other countries that have been extracting and sweetening for years".

Referring to the funding needed by the private sector for the implementation of the huge project to transfer water to the centre and east of the country from the National Development Fund, Dr Rouhani added, "The resources taken from this fund to implement these projects were provided in years 2015 and 2016 thanks to the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)".
