TEHRAN, Apr. 07 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi has called for rethinking about the post-coronavirus world, stressing that the 'virus' of unilateralism infects collective actions.

"#WorldHealthDay is a timely day for rethinking abt post-corona world," wrote Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi on Tuesday, April 7, which marks the World Health Day under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization.

He went on to add "#CoronaCrisis is an opportunity, if the global fighting on #COVID19 will lead to global solidarity & collaboration."
