Rouhani: Conditions prepared for economic development
EghtesadOnline: President Hassan Rouhani says that the today conditions have prepared the country more than any other time for moving towards economic development.
In line with that move, the media and press will play a leading role, Rouhani said while addressing the 22nd International Press Exhibition which he officially opened here on Saturday.
The social, political and economic publications should open the doors for the nation, region and world to move towards this end, he stressed.
During his address, the President said that the barbarism and misunderstanding about Islam and Islamic Jihad have hurt Islam, Muslims and region, according to IRNA.
'What has ensured security in the country and society today is the awakening, vigilance, awareness and solidarity inside the country,' the Iranian President noted.
Had the Islamic system not respected minorities and not focused on religious unity, terrorist groups of Daesh and al Qaeda would have made their presence in the country, Rouhani stressed.
The 22nd International Press Exhibition which opened here Friday evening hosts over 900 press organizations in 620 pavilions.
This year's press event focuses on 'transparency and honesty' as its motto.
