IRAN NEWS NATIONAL DESK
TEHRAN – Government Spokesman Ali Rabiei yesterday said that the current government is anti-sanctions and it is after pushing back sanctions and wiping the country from the Coronavirus.
Speaking in his weekly presser, he said the country is marking Health Week these days and felicitated the week to all who are involved in the health sector of the country.
He added that despite the outbreak of the Coronavirus, the government has not stopped its programs and it pursues its policies and necessary plans to tackle this problem.
He reiterated that the number of production of masks has increased from 400,000 to over 4m masks since the outbreak of the virus and disinfectants are available in all stores nationwide.
He added that according to the statistics, the number of persons infected with the virus is on the decline and so far over 72m people have been screened.
Rabiei reiterated that at this moment there is nothing as normality and all should observe social distancing till the moment the health ministry announces the country is clean.
On the impacts of sanctions on the humanitarian aids, he said that the U.S. President has taken a stand which causes a psychological climate, adding that he does not unfreeze Iran’s money and instead he claims Iran spends its money in other places. He reiterated that the government will announce exactly where the loan from IMF is to be spent and today all Iranians understand that if a civilian decides to export medicines, he faces problems.
Rabiei noted that currently the country is deprived of banking transactions and those who deny there are sanctions on medicines despite these evidences should tell us why imports of medicines face problem.
He also said he is surprised why some people in the country take side with the foreign-based Persian TV channels as everyone knows who run those channels and what are their goals.
Rabiei added that the government strategy in tackling with the Coronavirus is both to save people lives and their jobs and the government is determined to stop more unemployment in the country.
