Iran PressIran news: Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of national projects of the Ministry of Energy through videoconferencing, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, while advising the people to save water and electricity consumption, said: "Investment is an important part of the economy, and when there is no capital, we can not open a large economic project, even if we have new science and technology."

After the inauguration of these projects, Hassan Rouhani stated that during the years of economic war, some of Iran's incomes decreased and reached the point of being cut off; but in the country's petrochemical and steel industries, revenue was generated, new conditions were created in the export of gas and electricity, as well as in petroleum products, and these were cases that the enemy could not take into account.

He noted that, before his administration, Iran could not only export many products; but it also imported diesel, gasoline, and even gas."

"Iran, now, exports diesel, gasoline, gas, and electricity," he pointed.

Stating that the JCPOA had generated revenues for Iran, Rouhani said that oil exports had reached 2.6 to 2.7 million barrels per day after the agreement.
