Sanctions fails to affect Iranian nation's will for development

TEHRAN, Jun. 11 (MNA) – President Hassan Rouhani said on Thursday despite all pressures and sanctions by the United States, Iran has managed to move forward in the path of development.

“The fact that inauguration of different projects continues under the time of sanctions shows that we have continued our path and grown our production,” he said in the inauguration ceremony of a number of industrial projects in Isfahan and Khorasan Razavi provinces held via video conferencing.

He went on to highlight that these industrial developments mean that “sanctions cannot affect our nation’s determination.”

“Of course, sanctions put pressure on us and make our work harder; the fact that managers of industrial units are requesting for more currency to accelerate their production shows that enemies have failed in stopping us and forcing us to surrender.”

“We did not allow the enemy to achieve its aim while also continuing our own path; of course, our movement may have slowed down, but the path and direction will go on as before,” said Rouhani.

President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated several major industrial and mining projects in the provinces of Isfahan and Khorasan Razavi with an investment of more than 4.8 trillion tomans on Thursday via video conference.

The first phase of Sangan Steel Industries Mineral Industries Concentration Production Unit with 5 million tonnes of iron ore concentrate production capacity and Sanabad Comprehensive Development Company's iron pellet production unit with 2.5 million tonnes of iron pellet production capacity in Khorasan Razavi province and new projects of Entekhab Industrial Group including the large project of "Increasing the production capacity of the refrigerators and freezers" with a production capacity of 300,000 units and the project "Localisation of components and parts of home appliances" in Isfahan province, were inaugurated in this ceremony.
