Iran PressIran news: During the cabinet session on Wednesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani congratulated National Girl's Day, adding, today, the presence of women in all sectors of society, organizations, and jobs is magnificent and widespread.

The President said that no one in the world can accuse us that Islam is the religion of patriarchy, adding that it is an honour for the Islamic Republic and the government to open space for all women to participate in various activities.

Referring to Iran's recent situation, Rouhani said: "These days, we are facing problems in society, and our duty as a government is to solve these problems. These are the problems that we are witnessing and some are related to the coronavirus, and also the oppressive US sanctions. We have been facing these severe sanctions for three years. A country facing these two big and exhausting problems will have to contend with other problems as well."

President Rouhani also added, "We are the same country that had single-digit inflation in 2015, 2016 and 2017. We are a country where the level of our exports and imports has been positive in some years, and our non-oil exports have exceeded our imports."

"I haven't seen a day off in the last six months among the country's top officials. Everyone is working day and night with no breaks," Iranian President added.
