"The people are well aware of the conditions that prevailed in the country when I took over the reins of government, including the coronavirus epidemic, the financial and economic situation," said Ebrahim Raisi.

Ebrahim Raïsi acknowledged that the “budget deficit” could “create serious problems for the country”. "Inflation", "expensive prices" and "tax evasion" are among the government's challenges, he said. “The government is doing everything to achieve economic stability,” continued the president. He stressed that his government was working "vigorously for the lifting of sanctions" without, however, alluding to talks with the major powers on the Iranian nuclear issue.
