TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said his administration feels ashamed to see the Iranian graduates have no job.
It’s a shame for the administration that the Iranian educated youth are unemployed, the president said on Tuesday evening, at a meeting between Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei and senior Iranian officials in Tehran.
He was referring to recent comments made by Ayatollah Khamenei voicing concern about the burden of unemployment.
Back in June, at a meeting with the members of Iran’s new parliament, Imam Khamenei touched on the subject of job opportunities in the country, saying, “The shame that burdens this humble person's heart, over unemployed youth going home empty handed, is no less than their burden of shame.”
And in the last night’s meeting, the Leader referred to economic recession and unemployment as the country’s two major problems.
Ayatollah Khamenei also explained that such predicaments are blamed on the policies and plans of the country’s various cabinets rather than the foreign sanctions.
As regards the remedies for recession and unemployment, Imam Khamenei urged compliance with the Resistance Economy strategies and serious support for the knowledge-based Iranian companies.
