Tehran, March 6 : Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has slammed the US’ continued sanctions against the Islamic Republic amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Even amid Covid-19, the US continues to exert Trump’s failed ‘maximum pressure’ on Iranians. Isn’t it time to try something that may actually work?” Zarif queried on social media on Friday.
The Iranian diplomat posted the image of a six-year-old Iranian girl who was affected by the US sanctions, as well as a complaint made by her, reports Xinhua news agency.
The girl, called Yasna, said she had a seizure at the age of six months, and her parents could not obtain the only medicine effective for her treatment after “ignorant American politicians made a wrong and inhuman decision overnight”.
According to the letter, Yasna’s illness then worsened and led to many seizures, which reduced 99 per cent of her speech ability and 90 per cent of her decision-making capability.
Zarif warned that “her situation isn’t unique in Iran”.
