Cleric calls for naming committed ministers

July 29, 2017

TEHRAN – Tehran’s provisional Friday prayers leader Hojjatoleslam Kazzem Seddiqi has called on President Hassan Rouhani to nominate committed ministers in his next administration.

Pointing to the Ministry of Education, he said someone who takes the portfolio must respect moralities.

Commenting on the new U.S. sanctions on Iran, Seddiqi said there is no end to the U.S. “hostility” towards Iran.

He said “resistance economy” and “self-sufficiency” are the ways forward to counter sanctions.
