Therefore, sending the budget amendment bill is not on the government’s agenda.

Regarding the budget changes and whether this is an amount of expertise, the government spokesman said: “I do not have a judgment on how expert or political these statements are, and I do not want to have any. Some people are sympathetic. کردن. In any case, we respect everyone’s opinions and consider it necessary for everyone to provide answers and communication.

Rabiee added: the government is always looking for interaction and consensus with other elements and forces of the country. But it seems that critics and opponents are trying to present the government’s strengths in the budget as a weakness. The 1400 budget is realistic and accurate.

He continued: “Today’s reality and the image available from tomorrow, contrary to some statements about the forecast of oil sales in the 1400 budget, first of all, it is Iran’s right to have at least 2.300 million barrels, given its position in OPEC.” Sell ​​oil. Naturally, this right should be reflected in the budget, and the government, as the guardian of national interests, should provide the ground for its realization.

“We have emerged from a glorious economic war and our first achievement since the end of this battle is to take our share of the global oil market,” he said. “Some critics of the government are skeptical of the ability to extract and sell the projected amount of oil.” . We can produce 2.3 million million barrels right now. We are confident in the ability of the Ministry of Oil and the Minister.

Rabiee pointed out: “Our current budget in 1400 does not rely on increasing oil sales in any way, and what is achieved through more oil sales will be spent on defense and development and livelihood support.” But we should not be mistaken about the relationship between oil and the budget. Basically, based on an idea to reduce the relationship between budget and oil, they believe that we should not produce and extract more oil than we consume, this view is wrong.

The government spokesman reminded: “We believe that only today he sees the country and the continuation of the current situation.” While we must support oil for the growth and development of the country and build such an economy that the role of oil in it is negligible. We must sever the link between oil and the current budget, and all our efforts must be for the current budget to come from the dynamics of the economy, not oil.

He added: “Reforming the budget structure means that we increase oil revenues and its products and derivatives to increase national power, create the world need for Iran’s industrial products and oil derivatives and increase national security and invest in the growth and development of the country for generations.” Create a future and help people’s livelihoods to get through difficult times.

Rabiee noted: “Of course, we respect the concerns of the esteemed representatives and critics, but we believe that the budget is not only unrealistic, but well documented.” We hope that the best decision will be made in the national interest of the country.
