Raisi added that he sees “promising signs” of economic stability.
“Commodities were one of his problems and concerns,” Raisi said, adding, “No delays can be allowed in terms of commodities and strategy. I didn’t want to worry the people at first and tell them the conditions of the commodities but today I tell them don’t worry some measures have been taken during these In the short period, the concern has been completely removed and we have no problem with the basic goods.
