Ahmadinjejad calls for structural change in economy to neutralize sanctions

Press TV – January 16, 2013

Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has underlined the need to make structural modifications to the country’s economy as a means to overcome the sanctions imposed against the Islamic Republic.

“Employing national capacities, overcoming sanctions and disappointing the enemy are possible through structural modifications,” Ahmadinejad said in a Majlis open session on Wednesday.

The Iranian president attended the Majlis session to provide the Iranian lawmakers with the latest information about the country’s economy.

Ahmadinejad proposed four major ways to solve the country’s economic problems, namely the decentralization of the country’s wealth and assets, engaging the people in economic activities, making the utmost use of domestic resources and cutting the budget’s dependence on oil revenues.

He noted that the sanctions have been imposed on Iran to impede the country’s progress and development.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies have falsely accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program. The US and certain other countries have imposed sanctions against the Islamic Republic over the unfounded allegation.

Iran has vehemently rejected the allegations against its nuclear energy program, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
