US sanctions on food, medicine target Iranian nation

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 Iranianpeople; 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 afull panoply of US sanctions came into force against Iran.Humanitarian goods such asfood,medicinesandmedicaldevices are "in theory" exempted fromUS sanctions!However, in practice, US restrictions on financial transactions between Iran and foreign banksviolate their false claims.
