Following Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi’s claims today, Sunday, January 22, in the Iranian parliament, that “gold prices, hard currency, and high prices will begin to decline,” the price of the US dollar in Tehran’s free market rose to more than 45,000 tomans, setting a new record. .
During the next year’s budget defense session, Raisi made some allegations about the economic situation in Iran, which were met with wide reactions by Iranian parliamentarians and experts.
Raisi said, “Gold prices, hard currency, and high prices will begin to decline.”
Raisi’s allegations came before the Iranian parliament, while today, Sunday, the price of the dollar in the free market in Tehran witnessed a remarkable rise and exceeded 45,000 tomans.
According to sites covering gold and currency prices in Iran, the price of gold coins reached 25,300,000 tomans, and the price of the US dollar was traded for more than 45,300 tomans.
Iranian Interior Minister Ahmad Vahidi commented on the dollar’s setting a new record price, and claimed: “We are the ones who made the dollar huge.”-
The “Tejarat News” website wrote that with the rise in dollar prices, the price of renting an identity card to buy an Iranian citizen’s share of dollars and benefit from the difference in its price from the free market also increased.--
This comes despite the Iranian government’s efforts to rein in the dollar by placing restrictions such as cutting government support for national card holders to prevent citizens from entering this new brokerage.
Regarding inflation, Ebrahim Raisi also claimed that the rate of inflation has decreased and in the future people will see an even lower rate.
In conjunction with Raisi’s statements in the Iranian parliament, the Statistical Center of Iran published inflation reports and statistics over the past month.
