Mousavi added that while the United States has the highest number of people infected with the Coronavirus and the 'America First' slogan is realized only in this misery when American people are living in very horrible conditions, the officials in Washington are not deserved to comment on Iran's efforts to combat the Coronavirus.
"The US State Department officials have commented on Iran's actions based on false information by anti-Iranian lobbyists and cheaters," Mousavi highlighted.
The spokesman noted, "In recent years, the US government has acknowledged spending at least $ 9 trillion to interfere in the internal affairs of the Middle East and create insecurity and instability."
"The cost of creating and strengthening terrorist groups such as ISIS until the disgraceful the Deal of the Century that was dead-born. Of that amount, the staggering $ 2 trillion was just Donald Trump's first 3 years in office", the official noted.
