Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: We don’t Need Oil Revenues

According to the latest statistics revealed by local and international agencies, Iran’s oil productions and sales have been reduced drastically due to the severe sanctions set by the United States and European Union on Iran’s economy. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, believes the country won’t count on oil revenues from the next year.

“I can predict a bright future for the economy of Iran. Our country will continue its progress after passing the current hard conditions. The national unity has been fortified and this helps to Iran.” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said. The President will hand over his position to someone else after around seven months. The next presidential election of Iran will be held on 2013 and Ahmadinejad cannot nominate for the post again since he has served eight years as the President of Iran, according to Islamic Republic’s constitution.

“Iran is capable to be among the top 7-8 countries in aspect of economy. Currently we import $60 billion worth of goods and our non-oil exports are increasing on daily basis. Western sanctions against our economy had negative effects but Iran won’t count on the oil revenues from the next year.” Ahmadinejad added and downplayed U.S. role in Iran’s economy.

“Sanctions are not the only problem of our country. We have about 400 influential people in the country who own a big part of media, tribunes and wealth. They regularly create obstacles for the government and they don’t allow us to precede the needed activities.” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad concluded.
