Raisi’s time in office has been praised, noting that Iran’s crude oil output, a key source of hard currency for the country, rose to more than 3.6 million barrels per day. Oil Minister Javed Owaji said on Sunday that Iran is now exporting nearly 2 million barrels per day, despite Western sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic.

Iran’s acting President Mohammad Mokhber addressed the country’s new parliament on Monday in his first public speech since a helicopter crash killed his predecessor and seven others last week. His speech comes as Iran prepares to hold a presidential election to replace the late Ebrahim Raisi in just a month. Meanwhile, Iran’s new hardline parliament is expected to elect its new president on Tuesday.

In his remarks, Mokhber praised Raisi’s time in office, noting that Iran’s crude oil output, a major source of hard currency for the country, rose to more than 3.6 million barrels per day. Oil Minister Javed Owaji said on Sunday that Iran is now exporting about 2 million barrels per day, despite Western sanctions targeting the Islamic Republic. Mokhber also claimed that the country’s economy remained stable under Raisi when Iran took military action in Iraq, Israel and Pakistan in recent months.

The Iranian rial has fallen from 32,000 rials to $1 at the time of Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers to about 580,000 to $1. Today, it is about 580,000 to $1 in the wake of the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the accord and a series of attacks on shipping in the Middle East, attributed first to Iran and later to Yemen’s Houthi rebels as Israel’s war against Hamas in the Gaza Strip escalated.
