US sanctions on food, medicine target Iranian nation

TEHRAN, Nov. 21 (MNA) – President of the Iranian Red Crescent Society Ali Asghar Peyvandi said the United States' hostile approach and illegal sanctions, especially on food and medicine, directly target Iranian nation.

Speaking in a local ceremony on Tuesday, Peyvandi said "it is not the first time that the enemies impose economic sanctions on Iranian people; the Islamic Republic has been under sanctions since 40 years after Islamic Revolution."

US President Donald Trump pulled the US out of Iran nuclear deal on May 8, breaking with Europe, and on November 5 a full panoply of US sanctions came into force against Iran. Humanitarian goods such as food, medicines and medical devices are "in theory" exempted from US sanctions! However, in practice, US restrictions on financial transactions between Iran and foreign banks violate their false claims.
