US wages economic war, terrorism on Iranians / Stop aiding "war crimes"
Tehran (IP) - The Iranian Foreign Minister in his latest tweet said that the US has waged economic terrorism against Iranians amid the coronavirus outbreak.
The Iranian foreign minister once again lashed out at US inhumane sanctions, saying Washington has gone from waging economic terrorism on Iranians to promoting medical terrorism against them at a time when the country is in a fight against coronavirus.

Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi on Sunday 29 Sunday, described the 8 countries' letter to the UN secretary-general to lift anti-Iran sanctions as a unique measure.
Russia, China, Syria, Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea, Venezuela, and Iran have recently issued a joint letter to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on the lifting of unilateral US sanctions against Iran that have hampered efforts to contain the spread of the Novel Coronavirus.
Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi stressed on Saturday that the world must come to its own senses and prevent unilateralism and violation of international law because during the recent years the Americans dared to imposed their domestic laws and cruel sanctions on other countries.
In May 2018, US President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed between Iran and the P5+1 in July 2015, and reimposed Washington’s unilateral sanctions on Tehran. The sanctions have hindered, among many other things, the delivery of international humanitarian aid, drugs, and medical equipment to Iran, particularly, now that the country is fighting against the coronavirus.
