U.s. sanctions 'denying Iran access to key medical gear'; Tehran's acting consul general in Hong Kong and Macau urges international community to condemn America, but says support from China is proving crucial in fight against Covid-19
US sanctions are preventing Iran from getting the medical equipment it needs to combat the coronavirus, says Seyed Reza Hosseini, Tehran's acting consul general in Hong Kong and Macau.
"We are facing unilateral sanctions from the US, so the situation is worse [than in other countries]," he said. "These unilateral sanctions have made it more difficult to feed the economy. We also need to access our resources outside [of Iran] and buy equipment for the doctors."
