Tehran,March 27, IRNA- President Hassan Rouhani has said that Iran’s oil exports meet the targets since he took office last August.
“As far as oil exports are concerned, we exported oil as we had predicted and this is very important,” he told the first Cabinet session in the new Iranian year which started on March 21.
Petroenergy news network SHANA, quoted the president as saying that Iran’s revenues are close to real figures, adding that tax revenues have been more than predicted.
“All these show that the government has been successful in its job and I am very happy that the government has made very good achievements during the past seven months,” said the president.
“Once, the entire world needed us for oil exports and the world shook with our least gesture for fear of Iran deciding to halt its oil supply. The market was awash with our oil and the world energy was dependent on us,” said Rouhani.
“Anyway, we reached a point where our oil was sanctioned in violation of international conventions,” he said.
Rouhani added that international sanctions imposed on Iran show that the country’s economy is flawed.
He said that people should be kept abreast of all realities.
