Hojatoleslam Hassan Rohani appeared on a question and answer session on the national TV on Wednesday evening. The main topics he talked about were his economic plans in accordance to the Development Perspective, the 44th Article, and top state documents.
The former Secretary of the National Security Council pointed to Iran’s good offices during his incumbency and the fact that he managed to get the United Nations’ Board of Governors agree to the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear activities, asserting "That was the biggest damage to America’s reputation.”
Rohani also provided comments on the 44th Article and said "The 20-year Perspective Document was set for consideration by the Management Organization during the Reform administration after a long period of inconclusive debate between the right and the left.”
He stated that the country is currently behind the plan defined by the Development Perspective Document and asserted that instead of words, actions must be taken to realize the plans.
"Article 44 was not only intended to relegate the ownership of factories and industry, but besides ownership, management was also to be given over to people,” he added.
