Ministry of Health, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Central Bank should continue measures for providing foreign vaccines as seriously as in the past/ If it weren’t for US’ anti-human sanctions, we wouldn’t face any problems in providing vaccines
The meeting of the heads of the specialised committees of the National Task Force Against Coronavirus was held on Thursday chaired by the President.
Speaking in the meeting, Dr Hassan Rouhani emphasised the continuation of efforts to provide the vaccine with the necessary seriousness and sensitivity, saying, "Certainly, responsible agencies such as the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Central Bank should do what they did in the beginning".
"If it were not for all the problems and the inhumane actions of the United States, we would not have encountered such problems today in the supply of vaccines, and we could have been among the leading countries in this field," he said.
The President also instructed the operational headquarters to give the necessary warnings regarding presidential campaigns and elections with the utmost seriousness and determination.
Dr Rouhani said, "Medical staff and health defenders do not expect those who are supposed to occupy the highest executive position in the country to abuse the medical staff and make things difficult for them".
