Senior cleric urges president to consider CBI independence

MNA – This week’s Friday Prayers Imam in Tehran Seyed Mohammad Hassan Aboutorabifard called on Iranian President Rouhani to consider independence of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) into serious consideration.

Aboutorabifard said, “I ask President Rouhani to take effective steps for the independency of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and introduce a competent and most experienced manager, as confirmed by the other heads of branches of government, who can adopt accurate monetary and currency policies independently.”

As long as the Central Bank of Iran is considered as a fund for government’s spending, economic woes, inflation and expensiveness will not be managed and controlled in the country suitably, the cleric stressed.

Elsewhere in his speech, Aboutorabifard said “the world and evil triangle of Trump, bin Samlan and Netanyahu know that the Islamic Republic of Iran is a powerful and accelerating force that have provided suitable ways for forward movement of the resistance forces in the region in the best form possible.”

Aboutorabifard added, “after four decades, the Islamic Republic of Iran managed to make use of its powerful components [including political stability, exemplary security and accelerated scientific power, etc.] in line with boosting its position both in regional and international arenas.”
