Rouhani urges fight against smuggling of foreign commodities

Tehran, Aug 28, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday urged fighting smuggling of foreign commodities to Iran.

Speaking to the cabinet members, he underlined the importance of fighting smuggling of foreign commodities and making the Resistance Economy outlined by the Leader operational.

Rouhani also urged acceleration of scientific progress forward according to the sixth Five-Year Development Plan.

Execution of the principles of foreign policy of Islamic Republic should be pursued across the world, he said.

The proclamation, laying out a grand plan for Resistance Economy in Iran, was issued after consultations with the country’s Expediency Council and based upon the Clause 1 of Article 110 of the Iranian Constitution.

The Leader also described Resistance Economy as a dynamic and long-term strategy that can help Iran realize its economic objectives.
