Iran PressIran News: "The people of Ukrainians, like the people of Afghanistan, Yemen and Iraq, are the victim of the evil policies of the United States," Ebrahim Raisi said at a cabinet meeting on Sunday.

Referring to the visits of ministers and government officials to other countries, the president said: "When officials travel to a country and agreements are made there, Iranians should benefit from these agreements."
