Tehran (IP) - Health Minister stated despite the Americans repeatedly claiming they will not stop the sale of medicines and food to Iran, they have lied in this regard, and the flow of vital medicines has been stopped.

Iran Press/Iran news: Iranian Minister of Health and Medical Education Saeed Namaki regarding the US sanctions against Iran said: "They have put pressure on all our financial transactions regarding medicinal drugs and are exerting pressure on all pharmaceutical companies to stop the sale of medicines to us."

In an exclusive interview with Iran Press on the sideline of a weekly government meeting, the Iranian Minister of Health and Medical Education added: "We buy medicines in various informal ways and through brokers, of course, the medicines we buy are original, but with very limited and expensive resources, we never impose this expense on our people."

Namaki stated, "We called on the World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom, to intervene so that the voices of our oppressed people are heard and America's bullying against Iranians is exposed."

The official noted that the health of the people should not be the subject of politics. We hope that the pressure is lifted on the Iranian people, a nation that has fulfilled all its obligations.
