TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Members of the Iranian parliament’s Budget Integration Commission plan to hold talks on Monday to resolve the ambiguities of the next year’s national budget bill raised by the Guardian Council, the spokesman for the presiding board of the parliament said.
Speaking to Tasnim, Asadollah Abbasi highlighted the process of passing the budget bill of the next Iranian calendar year and said the ambiguities and problems of the bill raised by the GC will be discussed at the sessions of the Budget Integration Commission on Monday and Tuesday.
The commission is slated to resolve the ambiguities of the budget bill and submit its report to the Guardian Council, he added.
It is predicted that the problems of the budget bill would be finally resolved by the Budget Integration Commission by Tuesday, the spokesman said.
Addressing the parliamentarians in December, President Hassan Rouhani said the next year’s budget is designed to meet the purposes of resistance and countering the sanctions.
Highlighting the enemies’ failure to destroy the Iranian economy, he said the “Americans and Zionists” held the mistaken belief that tough sanctions on the Iranian nation and government would prevent the Islamic Republic’s growth.
The next year’s budget bill signifies that the administration will be running the country in spite of the sanctions, particularly when it comes to handling the oil incomes, Rouhani added.
The president also said that economic signs indicate that Iran’s economic growth, excluding the oil incomes, will be positive at the end of this year (March 19).
