TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club(YJC)_“Under the current circumstances, relations among countries should be based on humanitarian principles and hostile policies should be confronted,” Rouhani said in a phone call with Pedro Sanchez on Tuesday.
“But we are unfortunately witnessing that the US is still intensifying its sanctions against Iran under these highly tough circumstances and is even targeting the medical sector,” he added.
He noted that the US has also voiced opposition to Iran’s request from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for $5 billion emergency in funding to fight off the coronavirus and said “the European Union and Spain are expected to adopt a stance on this illegal move.”
The president said the Islamic Republic is ready to share its experience in the fight against the coronavirus with Spain.
Governor of the Central Bank of Iran Abdolnaser Hemmati wrote last month to the IMF to request a $5 billion emergency loan for funding Tehran’s needs to fight the novel coronavirus.
