In our metals, along with steel, aluminum copper is one of the most important metals in the country, which both meets our domestic needs and exports," Rouhani added.

The President went on to describe the statistics presented by the governor general of Kerman province as the good ones saying that 26,000 billion projects were inaugurated in the mining and mineral industries sector last year, and he promised that about 30,000 projects will be inaugurated by the end of the year, which means that the inauguration will take place."

He continued: "Such a vibrant province in various sectors is both a producer and an exporter and a proud province with great commanders and high-ranking personalities who protected our country and people, and a very high example of that is  Lt.General Qassem Soleimani and I saw what a great honor he had created for us, Muslims and the region, may God place his soul next to the soul of Imam Mojtaba (AS) these days.

Rouhani added: "We will definitely follow up on the water issue and we will discuss this issue with the Minister of Energy, both for the allocation of water and for the water to reach Kerman province from the southern region as soon as possible, and we know that it is one of the provinces for industry and agriculture."

Rouhani emphasized: "In the year of surge in production, we will see more and faster movement in production than in previous years."
