Iran's Acting President Hails Achievements in Selling Oil in President Raisi's Administration

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – While at the beginning of the administration of the late Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, which took office in August 2021, the country’s oil-selling capacity stood at 300,000 barrels per day (bpd), it rose to 1.8 million barrels per day a year and a half later.

This is according to Iran's Acting President Mohammad Mokhber who said, "The reality is that while oil selling capacity stood at 300,,000 barrels per day (bpd)  at the beginning of the administration; martyr Raisi could raise the capacity to about 1.8 m billion bpd over a year and a half span and the country was rescued from the very tight financial situation it trapped during the first days of taking office."

He added, "When the late President Raisi took power in August 2021, the country was faced with long hours of blackout, especially during peak hours of electricity consumption, but the Raisi administration managed to solve the problem by getting help from the Energy Ministry capabilities," Shana reported.

“Some people who boasted that they were capable in view of carrying out negotiations, diplomacy and expanding foreign relations, finally ended up in loneliness even among the neighboring countries; he said, noting the Raise’s administration could overcome some shortcomings during his 3-year in office and improved relations with the neighboring countries,” he said.    

Despite the US presence in a number of countries in the region, they have not been able to join a number of influential regional and international treaties, but during the presidency of Raisi, the Islamic Republic of Iran succeeded in joining some important organizations including Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), BRICS group of the emerging economies and Eurasia with close connections to the heads of the member countries, Mokhber added.
