Note that Iranian minister of foreign affairs Javad Zarif had tweeted in which he said, #Covid19 ravages the world, sparing no nation. Even the world’s largest economy needs others to help it fight the pandemic, yet refuses to halt its #EconomicTerrorism against Iran. Does the US want a “forever pandemic”? Moral imperative to stop observing the bully’s sanctions.

Javad Zarif has said on Monday that US anti-Iranian sanctions have doubled Iranina’s suffering from coronavirus outbreak.
He said, “These days the world is fighting against a common challenge. This time, it is not related to the borders and interests but it is about humanity, living, and staying,”
“What doubles the suffering of Iranians, what limits their choices in crisis management, and what aggravates concerns for citizens’ livelihood is that sanctions and coronavirus are coming at the same time,”
The Iranian foreign minister called for a global “moral will” against the U.S. excessive demands, noting “complying with sanctions should not lead to more war crimes.”
This even "exceeds what would be permissible on the battlefield."
STOP aiding WAR CRIMES.
