Iranian Foreign Minister requests UN support to fight COVID-19

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has requested support by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to lift coercive anti-Iranian measures from the United States that hinder the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Zarif published a list of the most immediate needs of the Ministry of Health in order to control the infection and spread of the virus.

'Iranian care personnel are courageously battling #COVID19 on frontlines, but their efforts are stymied by vast shortages caused by restrictions on our people's access to medicine/equipment,' he posted on this Twitter account.

'Viruses do not discriminate. Nor should humankind,' Zarif said.

As a result of the US punishment attempts, the Islamic Republic is facing difficulties to fight the pandemic, despite which, the World Health Organization (WHO) commends the work of the country. The most recent report on COVID-19 cases in Iran shows that almost more than 10,000 people have been infected with the coronavirus and 429 have lost their lives to it.
