[Iranian president Hassan Rouhani admits that the employees are not paid enough.]
Hassan Rouhani: The raise that we are giving to employees is not enough. We know that. However, this is all we can do. That is all our resources. We do not have anything else. Our resources are what we have in the treasury. It comes from different places – exports, oil, or taxes. Whatever that might be. Today we have no other way but resistance. If there was, we would go after it. Under these conditions, we must try to cut expenses.
