TEHRAN, May 08 (Press Shia) – Iranian president said Tue. that oil industry has a special role in Iran’s internal and external affairs and plays an important role in Iran’s diplomacy and national power.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks on Tuesday morning at the 23rd Iran International Oil, Gas, Refining & Petrochemical Exhibition (Iran Oil Show 2018) currently underway at Tehran International Permanent Fairground.

“We may have other industries that are very valuable, but the oil is special. The impact of oil and energy on people’s lives is also important because power plants that produce electricity also rely on oil.”

“Today, our bread is also dependent on energy, because if there was no natural gas, the bakeries would shut down,” the Iranian president added.

“Oil has never been an economic issue in Iran, but a political one, and has resulted in social and economic problems with its own characteristics,” he underlined.
