Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

IRNA* - Iran has seen the ef­fects of sanc­tions on fam­i­lies’ ex­pen­di­tures and in­creased the pub­lic ser­vants’ salaries by 20 per­cent, Head of Bud­get and Plan­ning Or­ga­ni­za­tion Mo­ham­mad Bagher Nobakht said.

“Even if the cur­rency rate de­creases or in­creases, we are try­ing to pro­tect fam­i­lies and the peo­ple.”

“Some­one says that the sanc­tions want to speed up the re­ces­sion and re­duce em­ploy­ment. We are tack­ling these is­sues,” he said.

He went on to state that Iran’s de­pen­dence on oil is about 27 per­cent. Nobakht said that the gov­ern­ment sub­mit­ted the bud­get bill to Ma­jlis on Thurs­day.
