Rouhani: Outgoing administration sharing experience with president-elect
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addresses a meeting of the Government’s Economic Coordination Headquarters in Tehran on July 18, 2021.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said his administration is offering a general outlook of the country’s economy to its successor and will share experiences with the next government’s officials.

Speaking at a Sunday meeting of the Government’s Economic Coordination Headquarters, Rouhani added his administration has made arrangements for the transition of power with a national outlook and seeks to realistically outline the country’s macroeconomic plans for the next administration, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Commenting on his cabinet’s efforts to give transparent reports about its activities over the past eight years, Rouhani said the country’s people are required to be informed of the problems that the administration has dealt with and of the measures it has taken to make the sanctions ineffective and counter the economic war.

In May 2018, US, under former president Donald Trump, pulled out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed between Iran and the P5+1, and reimposed its unilateral sanctions, as part of its “maximum pressure” campaign, on Tehran in a bid to bring the Islamic Republic to the negotiating table and hammer out a new deal.

Mostly targeting Iran’s oil and banking sectors, the sanctions failed to produce the desired result thanks to Iranians’ resistance.

Rouhani gave the assurance that the outgoing administration will share its experiences in coping with the sanctions, the economic war and the VOCCOVID-19 outbreak with the next government’s authorities.

In comments in June, Rouhani said the next administration will have a much easier job in running the country, since his cabinet has handled the situation under an unprecedented economic war and while facing problems in importing medicine and foodstuff.

He also noted that the next administration will take office under more favorable circumstances with regard to the pandemic’s woes.

Rouhani added efforts will continue for supplying the COVID vaccine, saying the homemade jabs will be soon available in the market.

Ebrahim Raeisi, the former Judiciary chief of Iran, won the June 18 presidential election by a landslide.
