Reaching petrochemical capacity by the end of this year to more than 90 million tons per year

Recalling that yesterday was the day of the petrochemical industry, he stated: “The petrochemical industry is a symbol of the creativity of domestic hard-working forces, foresight and prudence in the government and the efforts of government officials to remove the effect of sanctions, growth and development in the most difficult conditions.” The expansion of the petrochemical industry is one of the achievements in countering the sale of crude oil, and today part of the country’s foreign exchange resources also rely on petrochemical exports and downstream oil industries.

Rabiee continued: The 11th government, with the aim of continuing the development of the petrochemical industry as the first leap in the petrochemical industry that took place during the years 75 to 85, put the development of this value-creating industry on the agenda in the form of the second leap of the petrochemical industry. With the second leap in the petrochemical industry by the end of 1400, the number of petrochemical complexes will reach 83 and the industry’s annual production capacity will reach 100 million tons, exactly according to the goals of the Sixth Development Plan, and the industry’s revenue will reach $ 25 billion by the end of 1400. .

He pointed out: In 1992, 46 petrochemical complexes with an annual production capacity of 56 million tons were active, but now the number of complexes has reached 64 complexes with an annual production capacity of 77 million tons. The operation of 17 petrochemical projects is planned for 1999 as the golden year of the petrochemical industry, so that the capacity of the petrochemical industry will reach more than 90 million tons per year by the end of this year.

He added: 9 projects have been put into operation so far. Plans have been made to continue the development of the petrochemical industry in the coming years, so that with the realization of the third leap of the petrochemical industry by the end of 1404, the capacity of the petrochemical industry will reach more than 133 million tons. It will reach $ 37 billion.

We welcome the Judicial Development Document

The government spokesman went on to say that the document on the judicial transformation was announced earlier this week by the head of the judiciary, adding: “This document contains important points, including the fact that it emphasizes a positive confrontation in the judiciary.” The Judicial Transformation Document focuses on legitimate freedoms and focuses on transparency as well as accountability. The document also addresses a leading approach to citizenship rights, as well as engaging grassroots organizations to protect public rights, prevent corruption, mediate and support victims, and re-socialize.

He emphasized: “We welcome this document and we will do our best to implement it.” This document, along with the citizenship rights document, can bring about the observance of public rights and will guarantee the efforts of the two branches of government.

The world is a safer place without the assassin of Sardar Soleimani

Rabiee said: “The assassins of Sardar Soleimani committed this crime under the pretext of hitting Iran’s policy in defense of a just peace throughout the region, but after this short year, they should have realized that not only depriving the oppressed nations of the region of Soleimani’s courage and wisdom.” In the fight against ISIS and other forms of terrorism, it did not affect the will of our nations in this long path, but proved that despite such ruthless and ruthless evildoers, continuing the path of resistance and resistance against coercion and occupation is inevitable.

The government spokesman also stated: “Of course, we are happy that Soleimani’s killer will soon leave the American politics scene and we are sure that the world without Soleimani’s killer is a safer place for all nations of the world.” Once again, I offer my condolences on the martyrdom of this great commander to all the family of that great noble man, the Supreme Leader and the people of Iran.

Asked if Russian media had reported on January 25 that about $ 1 million in cash had been stolen from Iran in two packages sent to Russia in two bags, a government spokesman said the news was true. “Whether this has happened before and the effect of not joining the FATF is to continue this process,” he said. “The news is related to the criminal case of embezzlement of an employee of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, whose proceedings are underway.” It has been going on in Russian courts since last year. This is a matter under Russian law and has nothing to do with Iran or relations between the two countries. This money did not belong to Iran either. Therefore, the cases related to the case are not related to Iran, the only connection with Iran is that these funds were from the consular revenues of the Russian Embassy in Tehran. Therefore, neither the property belongs to Iran nor the accused is Iranian.

“But regarding the FATF debate, I have to reiterate that the FATF directly and indirectly affects all of our financial and trade exchanges,” he said. Following what I said last week about the corona vaccine, sanctions and the FATF affect our trade. Some regular opponents of the government launched a bizarre attack. This was while I spoke clearly and in a combination of the impact of sanctions and the FATF at the same time, but some have tried to abstract this issue.

Rabiee continued by saying that he did not want to reveal the names of the individuals at the meeting: “Brian Hook himself, who was the head of the US State Department’s action group against Iran, explicitly emphasized how Iran’s presence on the FATF blacklist could have had a greater impact on sanctions.” Cruelly help America. Clearly, Hooke initially falsely claims that the United States did not impose a ban on Iranian citizens access to medicine. But in response to why, contrary to US claims, financial transactions related to medicine and other human items have been hampered. He answers that this problem is not related to the United States, but to the problem of Iran and the world’s banks. These are the ones who are constantly lying and I do not want to cite them, but they clearly use the FATF as an excuse for their inhumane goals. That is, they are abusing both sanctions and the FATF.

The government spokesman stressed: “Therefore, I specifically referred to the excuses and abuses of the United States, which both resort to sanctions and in cases where sanctions do not work, resort to a complementary tactic called FATF. I used the word “excuse” and said that the blacklist has shown its effects in financial transactions, and this has become an excuse to put pressure on our country.

“If the critics of my speech have the slightest hesitation in appealing to the United States on both the pretext of sanctions and the FATF, they can refer to the statements of US officials and actors of sanctions and see that they are American,” he said. How do they resort to the FATF tactic when they fail to justify sanctions?

Rabiee added: “Finally, what I said last week was the opinion of the government, of course, the esteemed members of the assembly also make compassionate decisions, and God willing, what is in the interest of the system and national interests will be decided.”
