It underscored the “sinister awakening of sleeping cells” of the MEK, in their “thousands,” inside the country and expressed fear over the expansion of the activities of the MEK and its Resistance Units.

Inside Rouhani’s corrupt economic policies

During Saturday’s Coronavirus Task Force meeting, Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani confirmed a Reuters report stating Iran’s oil exports have dropped to 70,000 barrels per day in April.

Rouhani said: “If we rely solely on the oil barrel, we will have problems.” This means that the regime has given up on oil revenues. The regime had predicated the 2020 budget on exporting one million barrels of oil per day at $50 a piece. The regime had hoped for a total of $18 billion of revenue from oil exports. But given the sudden drop in oil prices during the coronavirus pandemic, there’s no chance that the regime can amass that revenue, even if it reaches its desired volume of exports. In the best-case scenario, the regime will only get $250 million in a year, one-seventieth of what it had anticipate.
