In this video conference that took place on Wednesday evening on the fourth day of the year 1400, Dr Hassan Rouhani was briefed on the work done in the centres.

The President thanked the staff for their great and round-the-clock services in providing services to the people, and said, "In the Government of Prudence and Hope, and in the last seven years, a lot of effort has been made to provide sustainable and safe water, rural water, treatment plants and sewage, which is not comparable to the past".

Referring to the importance of Karkheh Dam in water supply, electricity and flood control, Dr Rouhani said, "Without a doubt, if it were not for these dams, with the huge flood that flowed in Khuzestan in 2019, it would not be clear what the situation would be in this area".

Referring to the importance of the Bandar Abbas desalination centre and the government's attention to the development of such centres, the President said, "We may have no choice but to rely on seawater desalination to revitalise the southern and eastern regions of the country".

Dr Rouhani also said, "Gas supply to the villages has increased from 14,000 to more than 32,000 villages, while in this period we were also able to supply gas to the Sistan and Baluchistan region".

The President stressed the importance of saving gas consumption and said, "We produce more than one billion cubic meters of gas per day, and if we save 30% in its consumption, we can export about 100 billion cubic meters of gas per year".

Dr Rouhani also expressed his gratitude to the Ministry of Oil, saying, "Today, with the great measures taken in the Ministry of Oil, we have become self-sufficient in petrol and diesel, while eight years ago we needed to import petrol and even diesel. Today, we also have enough power to produce and transport petroleum products".

The President described the Gureh-Jask crude oil transfer project as one of the unique projects in the history of the country and said, "This project is of great strategic importance for the country's independence and is literally important for the country's independence".

Dr Rouhani added, "Last year was a year of Surge in Production in supply and production of the needs of this large transmission line in the country, and the fact that we managed to launch a thousand kilometres of transmission pipeline during the economic war is a very valuable and huge action".
