“The meeting touched upon greater unity and coherence between the three branches of government and all other forces who offer services to people,” he continued.

President of Iran, while noting that economic issues as regards production and investment were also dealt at the gathering, added “today, production, employment and economic hold great significance.”

He said heads of three branches agreed that investment required due attention and support; “we are looking for a serious support package for domestic and foreign investment.”

Rouhani emphasized that no one could damage dignity of the Islamic Republic of Iran reiterating that all branches of the government, under supervision of the Leader, enjoyed from unity and cohesion and that executive, judiciary and legislative sectors will all back the country’s armed forces.

“The incumbent government will work with Parliament and the Judiciary with further unity and coordination in order to fulfill people’s demands and requests,” he concluded.
