Revolution belongs to all ethnic, religious groups

TEHRAN, Feb. 10 (MNA) – Iran’s Hassan Rouhani hailed great figures of the Revolution, paying homage to early core of the Revolution and the pillars who formed the backbone of the Islamic government coming out of the referendum.

Rouhani made complimentary references to the former Revolutionary figures, the latest of whom was Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani who died of heart attack earlier in January, but believed that even without such pillars, the nation would fast walk in the road to Revolutionary ideals of ‘progress, spirituality, justice, freedom and national sovereignty upheld by the early Revolutionaries and the public; “the ultimate objective is to attain independence and to defy powers of the darkness; Revolution is a turning point in history of the nation; it overthrow a despotic regime puppet as it was and received orders from the White House, acting as a vassal state,” Rouhani said in his speech on Friday addressing the Feb. 11 rallies.

“Many men and women of merit contributed to this Revolution, but remained unknown, but acted heroically through an unassuming conduct; we owe the present security and stability to their anonymous contribution,” said the president. “In no revolution did the public endorsed a new regime of government within less than two months from the Revolution by participation in a referendum,” Rouhani asked rhetorically. “Nor did any revolution prepare their own new constitution, a feat only possible in Islamic Revolution of 1979.”

“The Revolution belongs to all ethnic, religious, and age groups; all generations will enjoy the benefits and boons of the Revolution; our youth will continue the path the young generation in February 11 1979 had begun,” president underlined.

Rouhani’s substantial part of the address in the ceremony focused on his government’s economic record on which president had been maneuvering since the JCPOA brought economic openings to the country through easing some part of sanctions; “we extremely improved the trade balance which had been well below zero; this means that exports significantly surpassed the imports; we also added to the treasury $ 20bn, and this all had been possible in this government,” he told the crowd. 
“Our reliance on oil income has gradually declined, touching lows as 32 per cent down from 44 per cent high during 3 past years; this indicates that the nation and the system had been moving in the road to flourishing,” said the president. “Production of gas in South Pars will exceed that by Qatar from the shared gas field by the time government ends its term in August 2017; the achievement should be recognized as for our expertise and indigenous capabilities.”
Rouhani continued economic improvements to transportation as well, where he believed Iran’s airline industry had benefited the most from boons of removing sanctions; “we are in a position now to purchase brand-new planes by good offices of our diplomats, to renew our antiquated civilian air fleet; now citizens would travel with more confidence and feeling of security, with sanctions on Iran’s air industry coming to an end,” he emphasized.
