Se­ri­ous de­ci­sions needed to solve prob­lems

Tehran Times - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN — Leader of the Is­lamic Rev­o­lu­tion Ay­a­tol­lah Ali Khamenei said on Wed­nes­day that “prag­matic” and “se­ri­ous” de­ci­sions must be made to solve eco­nomic prob­lems.

“In or­der to re­solve some of the key eco­nomic is­sues like prob­lems in the bank­ing sys­tem, liq­uid­ity, un­em­ploy­ment, in­fla­tion and bud­get­ing process, prag­matic and se­ri­ous de­ci­sions must be made,” Ay­a­tol­lah Khamenei said in a meet­ing with Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani, Ju­di­ciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Lar­i­jani and Par­lia­ment Speaker Ali Lar­i­jani, the khamenei.ir re­ported.

“Solv­ing the cur­rent eco­nomic prob­lems of the coun­try and at­tend­ing to the needs of the peo­ple re­quires self­less work and ex­tra­or­di­nary en­deav­or­ing, be­cause these prob­lems, in par­tic­u­lar, in­fla­tion and re­duc­tion of pur­chas­ing power has ex­tremely re­stricted the liveli­hood of a large num­ber of the peo­ple, es­pe­cially the un­der­priv­i­leged,” the Leader noted in the meet­ing held on eco­nomic is­sues.

He in­vited the three branches of govern­ment, es­pe­cially the ad­min­is­tra­tion to seek ad­vice and so­lu­tions from con­cerned eco­nomic ex­perts, and those ac­tive in the pri­vate sec­tor.

“Cur­rent con­di­tions of the coun­try has made the elites, and the con­sid­er­ate to feel re­spon­si­ble more than ever, and of­fer their ser­vices, knowl­edge, and ex­per­tise to the of­fi­cials. So, seize this op­por­tu­nity and fully ben­e­fit from rec­om­men­da­tions by the academia and those ac­tive in the realm of econ­omy,” Ay­a­tol­lah Khamenei sug­gested.

The Leader cat­e­go­rized eco­nomic prob­lems to “in­ter­nal and struc­tural chal­lenges posed to the coun­try’s econ­omy” and “the prob­lems re­sult­ing from the cruel sanc­tions im­posed by the United States”.

“When en­coun­ter­ing in­ter­nal and struc­tural chal­lenges of the coun­try’s econ­omy as well as is­sues aris­ing from U.S. bru­tal sanc­tions, ap­ply pru­dent so­lu­tions that would re­sult in sus­tain­able re­solv­ing of peo­ple’s liveli­hood prob­lems and the en­emy’s los­ing hope in sanc­tions’ ef­fec­tive­ness,” he said.

Else­where, he said, “There is no dead­end, nor any un­re­solv­able prob­lem in our coun­try and we will cer­tainly over­come in­ter­nal and im­posed prob­lems — by the Grace of God and by na­tion’s and of­fi­cials’ de­ter­mi­na­tion, as well as through ben­e­fit­ing from unique com­pe­tence of dear Iran’s pow­er­ful youth and in­tel­lec­tu­als and ac­ti­vat­ing the coun­try’s out­stand­ing re­sources and po­ten­tials.”

“In or­der to re­solve some of the key eco­nomic is­sues like prob­lems in the bank­ing sys­tem, liq­uid­ity, un­em­ploy­ment, in­fla­tion and bud­get­ing process, prag­matic and se­ri­ous de­ci­sions must be made.”
