TEHRAN — Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has prohibited the import of the American and British coronavirus vaccines to Iran, saying if the Americans were able to produce vaccines they weren’t in such dire circumstances.
“I really don’t trust them. They sometimes want to test the vaccine on other nations,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in televised remarks on Friday morning, on the occasion of the anniversary of 1978 Qom protest against the Pahlavi dynasty.
He also said he does not trust the French either, due to their infected blood scandal. “But if they (Iranian authorities) want to import vaccines from a reliable place, there is no problem.”
The Leader also said the enemies must immediately lift their sanctions, which have targeted not only Iranian authorities but also the Iranian people.
“The Western front and the enemies are obliged to end this malicious move and immediately stop it,” he stated.
