Iran Medical Academy Urges UN Not to Remain Silent in Face of US Crimes
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – In a letter to the UN, the head of Iran’s Academy of Medical Sciences complained about the “unjust sanctions of the regime” of the US against the Iranian nation, urging the international body to take action against US crimes.
In the letter, addressed to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, the Academy’s President Alireza Marandi said that he had previously written to the world body in condemnation of the “unjust” US sanctions targeting the Iranian people.
Following is the text of the letter:
United Nations Secretary General
His Excellency, António Guterres
I have written to your Excellency on previous occasions with regard to the unjust sanctions of the regime of the United States of America against our people in Iran. These sanctions as mentioned in previous letters have led to many obstacles in providing all kinds of medicine and equipment needed for the medical treatment of the Iranian population.
Unfortunately, we are now facing further illegal and inhumane obstructions by the United States in its indiscriminate blocking of international aid to Iranians affected by the recent floods, which have devastated large areas throughout the country.
Unfortunately, international human rights organizations have remained consistently silent in the face of these crimes committed by the United States regime.
Seyed Alireza Marandi, M.D.
