Iran’s health minister wrote to the World Health Organisation that “Iran is facing a unilateral, unlawful and flagrant violation of international laws by the U.S... Blocking Iran’s access to global banking channels has damaged Iran’s economy and disrupting key trade activities, including medicine and medical equipment. Thus, the health of the people has been the most targeted and damaged, particularly during the COVID-19 outbreak”. He further called on the WHO “to take necessary measures to end the illegitimate and unilateral sanctions of the U.S.”.
