Rouhani made the remark in an address to a large crowd of people in the western Iranian city of Hamedan on Tuesday, Press TV reported.
He said his administration has reached a point where it had anti-Iran sanctions annulled at the very institution and by the very group that had imposed them in the first place.
The Iranian president said the Islamic Republic has succeeded in not only having the sanction resolutions annulled – without even a moment of having implemented them – but also in establishing its right to uranium enrichment “not just as a slogan but through UN resolutions”.
He was referring to Resolution 2231, which was unanimously approved by the UN Security Council on July 20 to endorse the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 countries.
Referring to the country’s economic situation, Rouhani said his administration has achieved its objectives beyond expectations within the first two years in office.
“We have promised the people that we would reduce the inflation rate step by step. [Iran's] Statistics Center released figures two days ago, which show that... inflation has fallen below 14 percent and reached 13.8,” he said.
Iran has seen its inflation rate decline from its peak of over 40 percent under former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad two years ago.
Nobody above law
Rouhani said that no one and no organization is above law in Iran.
The president said all must obey the law and no one should resent doing it, IRNA reported.
“We are proud of being faithful to law,” said the president.
Referring to the upcoming elections in Iran in the next six months, President Rouhani called for national unity to hold the elections magnificently.
