Speaking at the regular weekly meeting of the Council of Ministers, President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, “We should leave the issues to experts for them to discuss at expert level”.

Some issues are very clear, said Rouhani, adding, “Why do we fight over clear issues? The truth is that the entire world is faced with money laundering. We must all make attempts to decrease corruption and stop money laundering”.

“We have to fight drugs, but we have addicts. We have to fight theft, but we have thieves. We have to fight corruption but we have bribery and we shouldn’t get mad about it,” he continued.

Stating that the Islamic Republic of Iran is the pioneer of fighting terrorism, he said, “Iran is the biggest victim of aggression and terrorism and using weapons of mass destruction and the major state in fighting WMDs, because we are its victims”.

He continued, “Today, we should be –and are- the top country in not letting terrorists take advantage of different financial systems for transferring money”.

Dr Rouhani went on to refer to the hard work and devotion of the law enforcement, IRGC and Basij in western and eastern borders, saying, “Unfortunately, there is drugs in our country and we must fight it. Where there’s drugs, there’s dirty money, which is being laundered somewhere, maybe in Afghanistan, Turkey or Europe”.

The President appreciated the warm welcoming and hospitality of the people of West Azerbaijan Province, adding, “People of Iran are very kind and wherever we go, they warmly welcome us despite the hardships they have been facing in the recent months”.

“In year 1394 when our foreign ministers and nuclear negotiation team were negotiating with the 6 countries, I visited Isfahan and the people of the city warmly welcomed him in a way that the US Foreign Secretary told the negotiation team that he had seen the welcoming and felt how much the people support the government”.

He continued, “One of the greatest honour of the 11th Government is working hard to save Lake Urmia”.

Referring to the work done in developing the private sector, free trade zones, tourism, power plants and new factories that have been opened, he said, “This indicates that our country is alive and the government is doing everything it can”.
