Speaking on Wednesday at the cabinet meeting, Dr Hassan Rouhani named the republic, Islam and Iran as the three pillars and the main pillar of the Islamic Republic and added, "These three make the Islamic Republic of Iran".

Dr Rouhani added, "Farvardin 12 (April 1), and the presence of the people at the ballot box 47 days after the victory of the Islamic Revolution and the vote for the Islamic Republic, showed that the administration of Iran is in the hands of the people and it is the people who choose the highest officials of the country".

He continued, "April 1 is not just a day, but a culture and a way to solve complex and fundamental problems in the country".

Dr Rouhani described the elections as one of the most important issues in the country.

The President said, "The first issue that we have in the remaining 4 months of the term of the government is to hold a glorious and passionate election, and we should all try to do so".

Dr Rouhani continued, "In the early days of the outbreak of coronavirus, we even had trouble supplying masks and alcohol, but the manufacturers, especially the country's knowledge-based companies, made everything we needed, and today they are still trying to finalise domestic vaccines".

The President mentioned sanctions as another important issue that the government faced, and said that he had recently faced a concern in this regard, adding, "Until today, the United States was 100% to blame for the sanctions. No one can doubt that. Under Trump, they imposed sanctions against humanity, and we even heard yesterday that they imposed sanctions on Iran over the import of chicken, which was extremely vicious, and you cannot find anything more vicious than that US government in history".

Pointing out that the new US administration has changed its approach, Dr Rouhani added, "If we do not pay enough attention, they may use propaganda and gradually tell our people that we are ready to negotiate and that it is Iran that is delaying it. We should not let this excuse fall into the hands of the people and public opinion".

"Of course, the new US administration has not done anything serious so far," he said, adding, "The new US administration speaks of diplomacy in words, but in practice, the same sanctions and pressure of the previous administration still continues".

Dr Rouhani also went on to say, "The lifting of sanctions and the return of the United States to the JCPOA requires only a serious will".

He added, "If they return to all their obligations in one day, we can return to all our obligations in one day as well".

"We consider a delay in lifting the sanctions against the Sharia, the constitution and the opinion of the people," said Rouhani, adding, "The government is the executor and the government is ready to take this great step".

The President also said, "Public vaccine is provided to the people for free according to the National Vaccination Document".

"We have no problem with the import of vaccine by the private sector," added the President of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
