He also said: “Oil industry’s rapid return to pre-sanctions conditions has amazed the world”, adding that oil regions should be viewed as a source of blessings and development.

Mentioning that Iran needs $18 billion to build other phases for the region, he said: “It is important to be able to keep using oil wells in long term and this needs modern technology”.

“Iranian people should benefit from the post-JCPOA era for youth employment,” he continued.

He went on highlighting that local workforce should be used for oil fields and said that creating employment opportunities for the local people of the regions is a top priority for the ministries of petroleum and industries.

“We have achieved 300,000-barrel production in the west of River Karun and we should reach the goal of 1 million barrels by attracting investment and technology,” he said adding that sustainable employment needs modern investment and technology.

Dr Rouhani went on saying: “Developing rail transportation is a must for our citizens’ safety and protecting the environment”.
