Dr Rouhani added, "The fact that in April 2019, 25 provinces across the country faced floods at the same time and a 7.3 magnitude earthquake will occur is a kind of divine experiment and in this experiment, people from different classes rushed to the aid of their fellow countrymen".

The President said, "In recent years, we have faced a full-fledged economic war in which we had to go through different routes to buy or sell a product, and this problem has been unprecedented in the history of the country".

Dr Rouhani stated, "Because of this economic war, the country's banking system was completely blocked and exports, imports, shipping and insurance faced severe sanctions, and these are problems that were beyond our control".

"It was the skill of the Iranian people to stand up to these conspiracies, and the government did its best to alleviate people's problems," he said.

The President said, "Over the past 8 years, the average salary of employees has increased 5 times, the salaries of retirees have increased 7 times compared to the beginning of the 11th government and the salaries of pensioners have increased 12 times".

Pointing out that solving problems is not only in the hands of the government, Dr Rouhani said, "We must maintain the unity of society and the country".

Referring to the government's work in the field of education, the President said, "Today, as the Minister of Education reported, in the past 8 years, an average of 28 classes have been added every day".

The President said, "The government has also implemented major railway projects to complete the country's infrastructure, and a large part of the railway-related projects will be inaugurated tomorrow".

Dr Rouhani referred the importance of vocational schools in education and said, "Since the beginning of the 11th government, I have been urging the ministers of education to make sure that students know at least one job in the last year of their graduation".

Referring to the opportunities and dangers in the field of cyberspace, the President emphasised taking care of its dangers and said, "In the field of using cyberspace, we must protect our children against its dangers, and in this regard, one of the responsibilities of teachers and educators is to teach students how to use this new space and stay safe, as cyberspace cannot be completely shut down".

Dr Rouhani referred to the government's measures in the field of combatting coronavirus and said, "In the 11th and 12th governments, we have greatly strengthened the health infrastructure and added more than 40,000 hospital beds and increased the number of ICU beds 2.5 times".
