Rouhani blamed the recent fluctuations in foreign currency prices on “a complicated psychological operation” launched by the enemies aimed at undermining Iran’s oil-free economy through intensified pressures.
He said the Islamic Republic is pushing hard for achieving an oil-free economy.
Iran has set the goal of an oil-free economy despite the severe conditions caused by the economic war of the enemies over the past two years, the president said.
He added that there has been a good trend in the main indices of the economy in Iran in spite of the extreme economic volatility caused by the cruel sanctions and the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The enemies of Iran have launched a complicated psychological operation to mount economic pressures on the country with the purpose of spoiling the oil-free economy, Rouhani stated.
While the adversaries are obstructing Iran’s oil exports, blocking the country’s access to its assets with maximum power, and constantly claiming that the Iranian economy is buckling under sanctions by citing fluctuations in currency rates and price of some commodities, the main indices of economy reveal the failure of enemies, he added.
Rouhani further expressed satisfaction with the current economic situation including production and exports despite the sanctions and coronavirus pandemic.
The president announced that the country will witness a normal situation as well as stability in the economy in the coming months.
Noting that the coronavirus pandemic has caused a hiatus in exports and imports, the president assured the Iranian nation that resumption of trade will result in the normalization of the export and import markets in the coming months and consequent stability in the economy and the currency market.
The president had announced in June that fluctuations in the foreign currency market were temporary and had no fundamental economic reason.
The Iranian rial has fallen to its lowest rate against the US dollar on the unofficial market in recent days.
