Iran not to become venue for testing foreign vaccines

Speaking in a meeting of heads of committees of Coronavirus Combat and Prevention Headquarters on Saturday, Iranian President Hasan Rouhani hailed the decreasing g trend of Covid-19 in the country due to good measures and health protocols taken in the country, saying that the number of deaths and hospitalizations decreased by 70% and 80% respectively.

He went on to say, “Today, supplying the vaccine is one of the demands of the people. The government is trying to achieve results as soon as possible or import approved vaccines.”

He also spoke about the US sabotages on supplying the vaccine, saying that in the recent month the country has faced some problems in terms of transferring money to buy the vaccine, and this one of the clearest examples of a crime committed by the United States against the Iranian people.

He also stressed that the health of the Iranian nation is a priority for the government saying that Iran refuses to import foreign vaccines that they have not passed their clinical trial and approval processes yet.

People should be assured that they will not be tested by foreign companies for the Covid-19 vaccine, he added.

He also added that even after vaccinating the people, it is a must to observe health protocols.

Zionists to speed up their collapse in case of miscalculation

Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi made the remarks on Wednesday, noting that the recent threats made by the Chief of Staff of the Zionist Army are just psychological warfare.

He went on to say that if the Zionist regime makes any mistakes, the Islamic Republic will destroy their missile bases as well as Haifa and Tel Aviv.

According to Shekarchi, the Zionist regime is not yet aware of all the military capabilities of Iran. Tehran is able to destroy Tel Aviv in the shortest possible time and any miscalculation of the Zionist will accelerate their destruction, he said. 

He further said that Iran’s nuclear energy facilities are completely peaceful, underlining that Tehran does not seek to produce and maintain nuclear weapons.

The Spokesman also highlighted that the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic are capable enough to defend the Iranian territory.
