TEHRAN, Jan. 6 (MNA) – With the stories revolving the Cabinet’s provincial sessions on air, the government has decided the issue.

According to the decision, first provincial visit by 11th Cabinet would be Khuzestan province set to be held on January 15.

Different stories had already been on air in the media about the government’s probable visit to Hormozgan and Khuzestan; however, with the Week of the Unity approaching, president will visit Khuzestan as his first provincial trip to attend to the issues of the province.

Reportedly, the government’s visits to provinces would seek advice from local government officials and elites, parliament representatives and major personalities of the provinces. Furthermore, the government would make more informed decisions when closely studying the region or province.

Formerly, it was announced that Khorasan Razavi province would be the president’s first destination in this series, but the government reviewed the decision. The second visit will be to Hormozgan, another southern province.
