Sistan and Baluchestan has always been one of the provinces emphasised by the Islamic Republic / The unity and cohesion in Sistan and Baluchestan has thwarted the conspiracies of the enemies for this province

Speaking on Friday afternoon during his visit to Sistan and Baluchestan and in a meeting with war veterans, scholars and elites of the province in the city of Zahedan, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi said, "We are indebted to Imam Sajjad for his great teachings of religious knowledge in the form of prayer to humanity, in which there are all the great human concepts for how human beings live".

Dr Raisi stated, "Sistan and Baluchestan has always been one of the most important provinces in the holy system of the Islamic Republic and many efforts have been done in this province thanks to the revolution. All those who remember the situation before the revolution will recognise that many services have been done for Sistan and Baluchestan".

Stating that the current situation is still far from the desired situation, he said, "Great men and many educated women worked for the development of this province. The honourable martyrs, commanders and nobles of this province did a lot of service to the people and their blood provided security for the province".

The President said, "Sunnis and Shiites played a role in various parts of the province to provide security in Sistan and Baluchestan against all conspiracies and all areas of insecurity".

Ayatollah Raisi continued his speech by pointing out that the people's table and business have been damaged, saying, "As a result of this situation, people's trust has also been damaged and this trust must be restored".

Pointing out that the Islamic Republic has never allowed Iran to become a ground for insecurity in neighbouring countries, Dr Raisi said, "The presence and role of the Islamic Republic in the region has always been -and will continue- to provide security not only for itself but for all countries in the region".

Ayatollah Raisi added, "The services provided should be appreciated, but at the same time a new plan should be launched to continue the good work that has been done in such a way that the people of the province feel that deprivation, poverty, unemployment and what the people are complaining about is getting better with the steps that are being taken".

Pointing out that we have a lot of God-given capacities in the province, the president said, "Makran coast is a capacity that, if activated, will enable better exploitation of the maritime economy and the tourism economy in the province will be activated".

The President said that using the province's indigenous capacities for development, especially the huge capacity of indigenous human resources, is definitely a priority, noting, "The use of indigenous forces for the development of the province, especially forces such as veterans and elites who have passed the test must be a priority".

The president said, "The presence of Americans in the region did not provide security or contribute to the development of the region. After 20 years of their presence in Afghanistan, today we see that they destroyed Afghanistan. 30,000 to 40,000 children in Afghanistan are disabled, women are homeless and people's homes are destroyed. They raised divisions in Afghanistan to the highest level".

Dr Raisi stated, "Iran is the host of the dear Afghan people today and they are the guests of the Islamic Republic. There are 3 to 4 million Afghans in Iran today who have been harmed in their own country and their homes have been destroyed, and every day they want their country to be safe so that they can return to their own lives".

The President stated, "In Iran, efforts have been made not to harass the dear Afghan people, and therefore we have tried to make the presence of these loved ones completely legal. These efforts will be accelerated by the Minister of Interior, and we call on Afghan refugees to be covered by legal frameworks, as these legal frameworks are more effective in regulating the situation and serving them".

The President also referred to the issue of water rights in Sistan and Baluchestan, saying, "The revival of this water rights will definitely be pursued through active diplomacy and in all possible ways, and this issue is definite".

Dr Raisi further mentioned the border as another opportunity and capacity for the province and thanked the people of Sistan and Baluchestan and added, "Border trade is a good opportunity to create employment and economic prosperity in the region that should not be ignored".

The President stated, "Due to the popularity of Iranian goods in neighbouring countries, there is a lot of room for increasing exchanges and cross-border trade".

He stated, "The general public is trying to live lawfully, and if we make cross-border trade completely legal, it will also prevent illegal trade. This will also prevent the border villages from becoming uninhabited".
