“The Islamic Republic of Iran is a document expressing honour of the clerics and seminaries and the 11th government needs support from clerics in expressing realities and voicing fair, sympathetic criticism” said President Rouhani late on Saturday.

He added: “Despite issues that the countries of the region are facing, today the Islamic Republic of Iran is progressing towards development and advancement with stability and security”.

“The 11th government will keep to all of its promises and has never done anything important without consulting experts”.

“Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran has a special place in world’s public opinion. One of the points always underscored by the late Imam Khomeini, was world’s public opinion and he was always stressing that the biggest power in the world is public opinion,” continued the President.

He added: “People expect clerics to protect material and spiritual interests of the country through the power and authorities they possess”.

Referring to Iran’s special place in the world in terms of regional and global transit, educated and expert young population and interaction with the world, he said: “These assets and powers should be appropriately used”.

“Yesterday, the people expected clerics to express God’s rules, and today, they want planning powers in addition to expressing God’s rules; and that we can protect and defend the material and spiritual interests of the country from the shortest and most direct way,” added the President.

He also referred to advancements achieved during the current government’s term of office in fields such as economy, politics, health and science.

“With regards to scientific growth rate in the world, Iran is currently in the 4th place and, in the current year, all efforts will be directed towards economic growth and prosperity”.
