Rouhani Protests White House’s Inhumane Sanctions, Crimes Against Humanity
By Staff, Agencies
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made strong protest to the White House over the inhumane sanctions and maximum pressure on Iran, saying that the White House is responsible for the crimes against humanity due to shortage of medical and emergency supplies.
Rouhani made the remarks at a meeting on national anti-coronavirus headquarters in Tehran.
He also said that domestic opponents of the government must not give wrong address about the shortages of medicine and emergency supplies, they should know that the White House is accountable for the inhumane sanctions on Iran.
Someday, when Iran had talked about certain issues, two or three countries would support it; but today, only two or three states back the United States because it has not been faithful to its commitments compared to Iran honoring commitments, Rouhani said.
Despite the world criticism, US withdrew unilaterally from the July 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], in May 2018.
Speaking about the issue of COVID-19, Rouhani called on people to increase cooperation in order to breeze through the deadly coronavirus conditions.
Over half of the population did follow health protocols in recent months, he added.
Since its outbreak in December 2019, the coronavirus has killed near one million people worldwide, while the number of the dead in Iran is over 25,000.
