Letter of Iran’s Health Minister to the Director-General of the World Health Organization

The international community should not remain silent about cruel sanctions against Iran.

By sanctioning Iran, the United States has not practically committed economic terrorism but also crimes against humanity.

Serious obstacles for importing medicine and medical equipment have had negative impacts on the quality of treatment for Iranian patients.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has always sought constructive and respectful relations based on mutual interests and respect. In contrast, the United States has always been seeking to violate international regulations and the UN Charter.

Some Iranian patients have been exposed to the dangers and complications of lack of some medicines and medical equipment.

International community must show a reaction to end US unilateral and illegal actions that cause suffering and death for the Iranian people and negative effects for global health and health security.
