Iranian parliament has approved the law to cut the exorbitant government subsidies that held the price of living staples such as energy and food down, and instead to extend monthly benefits to needy families.

Ahmadinejad maintained: "The government wants to put everyone's due in their own pocket so they can manage their own rights."

He added: "It shouldn't be thus that some take 30 times more than the rest and others get nothing."

The cutting of subsidies has been delayed since March due to disputes over its details between the parliament and Ahmadinejad.
