Iran’s President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi stressed that his administration is focused on completing high-priority semi-finished projects.
Speaking on Friday during a visit to the site of an incomplete dam project in the western province of Ilam, Raeisi added eroded public trust is among the many serious losses suffered when abandoning executive works unfinished, IRNA reported.
He noted that in addition, a failure in the timely completion of projects results in the wastage of national assets and capitals.
In addition, in an address to local people in a visit to a martyrs’ cemetery during his Ilam trip, the president said the secret to the country’s progress and victory is continuing martyrs’ path with devotion and sincerity.
He added the martyrs’ message is that “we must not allow the aspirations of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution and the necessity of sticking to the guidelines of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei to lose their importance in the society lest justice is trampled down and Iranians’ honor is distorted.
The president noted that Iranians’ are indebted to the people of Ilam, as during the Iraqi-imposed war (1980-88) they resisted against the enemy and made considerable sacrifices.
He added 3,000 people of Ilam were martyred during the eight-year war.
In his fourth provincial visit since being sworn in as Iran’s eighth president, Raeisi traveled to Ilam on Friday.
He had earlier visited Khuzestan (southwestern Iran), Sistan and Baluchestan (southeastern Iran) and South Khorasan (eastern Iran).
