The Islamic Republic of Iran is a member of Group 77.

In recent months, following the outbreak of the Coronavirus in countries around the world and in Iran, international officials and a large number of countries have called for the lifting of unilateral and illegal US sanctions against Iran.

However, White House officials continue to insist on continuing their approach of sanctions as part of a policy of maximum pressure against Iran and have consistently announced new sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Washington's unilateral and oppressive sanctions, which include basic items and even medicine and medicine, have created problems for the Iranian people, especially those infected with Covid-19.

The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Mohammad Javad Zarif, recently criticized US hostile policies in the midst of the Coronavirus outbreak, saying that the world could no longer remain silent in the face of US economic terrorism linked to medical terrorism.
