International community do not remain silent in the face of the oppressive American sanctions against the Iranian people/With sanctions against Iran, the united states actually committed an economic act and caused crimes against humanity/The course of food preparation, medicine and medical equipment for all the Iranian people has been in trouble

According to Webda, the Minister of Health and Medical Education, Dr Saeid Namaki, described the procedures taken in various meetings for the supply of medicine and medical equipment, in separate letters, the cruel and inhuman purposes of sanctions issued to the General secretary of the United Nations, and Henrietta four, the children United Nations' s Fund (UNICEF)

The letters are aimed at the strict restrictions imposed and the acts of threats and anti - humanitarian threats in the course of food, medicine and medical equipment for all Iranian people in spite of American claims

In these letters he says

As you know, the brave people of Iran are victims of conspiracies and economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. government

Strict restrictions imposed on the unilateral U.S. threat measures have targeted the impossibility of acquiring and importing food, medicine and medical supplies to all people in Iran

According to the American claim, these severe sanctions do not appear to include drugs, food and medical equipment, while virtually stopping the banking system in international banking systems and imposing new restrictions on Iranian companies dealing with foreign companies
It cannot be considered other than deliberate efforts to stop importation and provide such goods to the needy people

As Dr. Rohani, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran, said at the inauguration of the sixty six summit of the Ministers of Health in the Eastern Mediterranean Region,With the Sanctions against the Iranian nation, the United States has not only committed economic terrorism but has actually committed crimes against humanity
The establishment of serious barriers to medicine imports and medical equipment affects the quality and treatment of many patients

These sanctions specifically prohibits the preparation of antiretroviral drugs for patients with cancer,The provision of cobalt fuel and cyclotron, pet scan and gamma knife and even dressing care treatments are provided for treating children with E.B disease (EB)

Two American pharmaceutical companies that produce specific medicines for sarcoidosis patients have apparently stopped exporting these drugs to Iran.
All of these movements oppose the global goals of universal coverage of health and the slogan "No one should be ignored" and providing health services to all


The Islamic Republic of Iran has always sought constructive and respectful relations based on common interests and mutual respect.In contrast, the United States has always sought to deviate from international laws and charters of the United Nations
Unilateral U.S. withdrawal from Joint Comprehensive Action Plan is an example of a unilateral and illegal settlement

I would like to tell you that Iranian patients are even more prone to the risks of mortality and complications resulting from a shortage of drugs and medical equipment
As the Minister of Health, Medical care and Education, I am responsible for providing medicine and medical services to my fellow countrymen, and I insist that this crisis is avoidable
I believe that the World Health Organization as the main body in charge of implementing public health coverage should not be silent about this important issue
It is to be mentioned that the silence against such malicious attacks has caused the shame of the international community
The oppressed people of Iran witnessed the silence of the international community against the crimes of Saddam Hussein on the issue of using chemical weapons

I hope that the international community is not in fault with this crisis.The UN authorities must be accountable to acts of violating the laws, including human rights and humanitarian law, unilateral and international diplomacy principles

Most importantly, innocent citizens were the primary victims of such acts by the United States.Therefore, I ask for the necessary measures to put an end to such unilateral and illegal acts that cause suffering and death to the people of Iran and negative effects on global health and health security.History will judge the progress made for this preventable situation


Yours sincerely

Dr Saeid Namaki, Minister of Health, Treatment and Medical Education of the Islamic Republic of Iran
