Rouhani lauds cabinet’s committee for easing sanctions’ impact


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hailed the Economic Coordination Board of his administration for its effective role during “hard conditions of sanctions and economic terrorism”.
Speaking in the last meeting of the Economic Coordination Board in the current administration, Rouhani underlined that the board played the role of a war headquarters during “economic war”, referring to the three years of draconian sanctions imposed by the US against the Iranian nation, IRNA reported.
He said that people’s livelihood has been at the center of the board’s focus, as food security and economic stability play an important role in social and mental security.
Although economic and political war factors were in the foreign relations arena, the President noted, Economic Coordination Board managed to alleviate the economic impacts of this political aggression by timely proper decisions.
He went on to say that the board has used the opinions of economists and experts in its decision-making process.
The President thanked the board and First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri for his pivotal role in the board.
