INU - Military spending in Iran has skyrocketed during the presidency of Hassan Rouhani, the so-called moderate President of the Islamic Republic. Economic analysts say that the 2017/18 budget bill that is presently being reviewed by Iranian parliament is a military-security budget.
Iran’s annual budget is separated in two. The larger part is to do with government organisations, banks and public companies. Revenues and outgoings are only spent in this section. The other part of the budget – the public budget – determines policies. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) report that 371 thousand billion tomans (or 92 billion and 750million dollars) will be spent here. Some of this will be spent on security-repressive and terrorist organisations.
