US refuses to lift sanctions on coronavirus-infected Iran


Despite the fact that Iran is one of the countries that suffered the most from coronavirus in the Middle East, the United States intends to increase pressure on Tehran.


According to a Reuters report, the United States sent a message to Iran this week: the spread of coronavirus will not save it from US sanctions that limit oil revenues and isolate the economy country.

According to Washington, the American “maximum pressure” campaign aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear and missile programs, as well as Iran’s activities in the Middle East region, does not impede the flow of humanitarian supplies to the Islamic Republic.

Recall that this week the United States imposed new sanctions against Iran, which affected 12 companies. Moreover, all of them are outside the Islamic Republic itself. Five of them are based in the United Arab Emirates, three in mainland China, three more in Hong Kong and one in South Africa.

The companies on the sanctions list traded products of the petrochemical industry of Iran.

In a commentary to the agency, an Iranian spokesman called increased pressure from the United States a crime against humanity.

The whole world should help each other in overcoming this disease.

- he noted.

Despite appeals from the world community, US Special Representative for Iranian Affairs Brian Hook said that policy Washington will continue to exert maximum pressure on Tehran.

Recall, at the moment, almost 20 thousand cases of COVID-19 infection have been registered in Iran, the number of deaths is approaching 1500.

    And in honor of what? How does the development of the epidemic, largely due to the mediocre actions of the authorities, affect the sanctions on Iran’s dangerous development of nuclear weapons for the whole world?

      The Ayatollah needs to be crushed, and the harder it is, the better.

        Binder, for a resident of the state of Israel, this is a very rash and stupid statement. You in the heat of the argument showed your true face. Then do not complain.

        PS I ask the Jews not to be offended, I answered Miron, not the Jews. Please feel the difference!

          Ie, most likely, for you repeated statements by officials about the desire to destroy the state of Israel, as I understand it, is the "norm"?

            I don’t understand why the website still has a direct call for violence and war from a resident of Israel, a country promoting free love?

              I don't know what country you are from, but since you are writing here, tighten up the Russian language, "..weighs ..", this is about a cast-iron weight. And about "free love", it seems, you know better.

                Arkharov, I can’t figure out where the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were located? It seems to be not far from Gaza. Does the Jewish people have anything to do with these cities? (of course, in the historical past).



                Gay parade takes place every year. TEL AVIV 2019.

                PS For the mistake made above, please excuse me.

                  And that, gay parades are held, probably in half of the countries of the world. What particular conclusion about Israel do you want to draw from this? Don't go, don't look. I do not particularly approve of all this, rather, I do not understand what is the meaning for "them". Is it all social now, or I don't know what to call it correctly, the groups should hold parades? But, incidentally, I don't see anything catastrophic in this. With all these far-fetched "problems" and reasoning, someone is leading public opinion away from the real problems.

                    Israel is a leader, you can check.

                    The Israeli Supreme Court has recognized a number of rights for same-sex couples in same-sex marriages, including the joint adoption of children.

                    The European Court of Human Rights decided to oblige Russia to allow gay parades. The court report said that Russia violated a number of articles of the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Freedoms. I don’t know if the Moscow gay pride parade was held in 2019 or not.

                    PS We will wait until the new version of our Constitution allows us to live according to the laws of the Russian Federation and ignore the absurd demands of the EU.

                        However, the comment, the call to kill the spiritual leaders of Iran has not been removed. The moron who wrote this does not understand that his people will suffer.

                        Not a philologist, I can't say, but the word "crush", I think, does not always imply physical destruction. I am not calling for anything, purely my value judgment, but these ayatollahs represent one of the main threats to humanity as a whole, in terms of its existence.

                        This is another example of a substitution of concepts and brainwashing for you: can the problem of the Iranian nuclear program and the ridiculous problem of gay parades be compared, at least to some extent?

                  Give him advice, at the right time, still use your mind. And let him not worry, others are sitting on their minds, they are still talking about them - they are strong with a backward mind. Did you hear that?
