Tehran (IP) - The head of Iran's judiciary said that we shouldn't rely on enemies to solve our problems.

Iran Press/Iran News: "I swear there is no problem that we cannot solve, and our people are able to solve all the problems so we shouldn't rely on others and in particular our enemies to solve our problems and remove difficulties," Ebrahim Raisi said in a meeting with the staff and personnel of the National Inspection Organization of Iran on Wednesday.

"We need economic development. Without the development, we can't achieve economic security and without economic security fighting against corruption will not work properly, and investors and entrepreneurs will not have an interest in investing," the head of Iran's judiciary highlighted, Iran Press reported.

In further remarks, Raisi said corruption has turned into a big issue, and everyone expects this problem to be tackled.

He pointedly added: "One of the biggest sins is to belittle sins and count sin as 'insignificant'. Thus we mustn't tolerate corruption, even if it a small amount of corruption. A little bit of corruption and fraud tends to grow into a big problem with the passage of time. Thus, corruption, big or small, should be tackled and uprooted."  

Turning to investors and job creators, the Head of the Judiciary said: "Bureaucratic red tape must be removed so that investors and job creators can set up factories and manufacturing units without any problems. This is to the benefit of the economy. Thus the staff and personnel of the National Inspection Organization of Iran have a duty to remove unnecessary bureaucratic red tape." 101/211/201
