President of Iran Hassan Rouhani said his administration will keep on developing a grand project to transfer desalinated water from the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman to inland arid provinces.

Speaking on the sidelines of an online inauguration ceremony of a series of agricultural projects on Thursday, President Rouhani highlighted his administration’s success in desalinating sea water from the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman and in supplying it to desert areas.

“This major project will continue,” he said, adding that the fresh water will be transferred to the cities of Sirjan, Kerman, Yazd, Ardakan, and Isfahan, (central and southern Iran) and to the provinces of South Khorasan, Khorasan Razavi, and Sistan and Balouchestan in east and south east of the county, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The president also said his administration has been preparing saline lands for cultivation with proper drainage solutions.

In the online event, the president inaugurated several drainage projects, fishery plants, green houses, and a center for smart management of agricultural plans.

The new projects have created employment for nearly 16,000 people.
