Rouhani promises to help quake-hit people

Tabriz, Nov 27, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said Iranian government considers problems of the quake-hit people as its own and will stand by them, promising to help them leave behind the hardship due to destruction of the houses.

Rouhani made the remarks on Wednesday during a visit to the quake-stricken town of Dastjerd.

He promised the people of Dastjerd that the government will support them by paying all costs of the reconstruction of the damaged houses.

He added that the Iranian government will spare no efforts in this regard and expressed hope for the Housing Foundation to contribute to the reconstruction and reinforcing the structure of the houses in the quake-hit area.

President Rouhani, who arrived in East Azarbaijan's capital city of Tabriz Wednesday morning on a day-long visit, is to open several industrial, health and development projects.

It is the fifth visit to East Azarbaijan province of President Rouhani over the past four years.
