Friday, 11 May 2012

Head of Expediency Council Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani criticized western countries for putting the sale of “vital” medical drugs to Iran under sanctions “How can westerners claim that they observe human rights when they put vital drugs for patients on their list of merciless sanctions.” Rafsanjani said addressing a meeting with the management and staff of the Special Diseases Foundation. Iran announced that European countries are refusing to sell Iran radioactive pharmaceuticals that are mainly used to diagnose and treat cancer. Iranian Health Minister Marziyeh Vahid Dastjerdi said recently, “Iran is almost self-sufficient in producing drugs and 96% of the various medications needed are produced inside the country.”
