Iran, Russia Discuss Coronavirus Epidemic

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, discussed the coronavirus epidemic with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, during a telephone conversation.
During Tuesday’s call, the two sides discussed the current situation and the impact of the spread of the coronavirus in both countries and around the world.
Zarif and Lavrov also discussed the efforts of the Islamic Republic to deal with the pandemic in the face of sanctions, current political developments in Afghanistan and international efforts against the unilateral US bans against various countries.
Lavrov said Moscow wanted the United States to lift sanctions that hamper Iran’s fight against the coronavirus epidemic as soon as possible.
Iran has the fourth official death toll from coronavirus after Italy, China and Spain. The country is in the midst of a two week Persian New Year vacation when the roads are filled with people visiting their families.
Despite calls from authorities to keep people at home and the closure of shopping and entertainment centers, many people have hit the road, as usual, this year.
Nearly 2,000 people have lost their lives due to the deadly virus epidemic in Iran.
