Iran’s Supreme Leader urges to boost production in conditions of US sanctions
YEREVAN, MARCH 21, ARMENPRESS. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei called on to boost production in the conditions of the US sanctions, reports Armenpress.
“Especially in recent months, people’s livelihood problems have increased”, the Supreme Leader said in his message on the Iranian New Year, Nowruz.
“What I would like to mention in this regard is that the country’s urgent and serious matter and its priority in the present time is the issue of the economy. Regarding the economy, the issues that we have are many: the issue of the decrease in the value of the national currency is an important matter. The same is true of people’s purchasing power. The same condition exists regarding factories, their lowered capacity and the closing down of some of them. These are the problems. Based on research and having benefitted from the viewpoints of experts, one concludes that the key to all these problems is the expansion of national production”, Khamenei said as quoted by IRNA.
