Speaking on Wednesday after the last cabinet meeting of the year, Dr Hassan Rouhani emphasised, "Next year we will definitely have a better year in controlling coronavirus and conditions will be much better than this year".

Referring to the oppressive sanctions and the US economic war against the Iranian nation, he said, "Despite all the hardships and problems, our country's economic growth has been positive in the first 9 months of the year, which is very valuable and worthy of appreciation".

Dr Rouhani pointed out, "Coronavirus has affected all economic, cultural and social sectors of people's jobs, economy and daily life. We have made appropriate plans for each of these cases".

Dr Rouhani said, "Very good measures have been taken in the field of purchasing and manufacturing the COVID vaccine, and we hope that the domestic vaccine will be available to the people next year, and undoubtedly next year will be a better year for controlling this disease".

Referring to the problems caused by the oppressive, illegal sanctions, the President said, "Since 2018, it was no longer sanctions, but we entered the economic war, and in this war, like the 8-year war, we were alone and resisted with all our might".

Dr Rouhani said, "Under the conditions of war, we need to be united and stand together, not magnify the weak points".

The President said, "The government was able to fulfill a 40-year-old wish for low-income people which was free water, gas and electricity".

The President said that we have achieved great successes in terms of politics and foreign policy, adding, "September 20, 2020 is a very important day in the history of the country and on this day the US Snapback plan failed, as well as October 18, 2020 was the end of the arms embargo, and in February of this year we had great success in the Hague".

Emphasising that today the conditions are better than ever for the sanctions to be broken, Dr Rouhani said, "The Americans have repeatedly and explicitly stated that the path of the previous administration was wrong and maximum pressure has failed, and stressed that they want to return to the path of commitment and the JCPOA, of course, it is not enough to just say and we are waiting for action".

Emphasising that any delay in lifting the sanctions is a betrayal, the President stated, "If any faction, individual or group delays the lift of the sanctions for an hour for any reason, it is a great betrayal of the history of the Iranian nation and eternal disgrace for that faction or the person".

Stating that the sanctions is a violation of the rights of the Iranian people and should be stopped, he said, "I hope the minority who seek to obstruct this way will repent and give up, and if they do, the government knows how to end the sanctions".

The President stressed the need for a glorious election next year and said, "Next year we have a very important task that we must all work together and that is to hold a glorious election in 1400".
