The Iranian nation “has understood U.S. human rights crimes more than anybody else”, said the government spokesman on Monday.

Making the remark in a tweet, Ali Bahadori Jahromi added the United States has constantly violated Iranians’ economic rights through imposition of illegal sanctions and threatened children’s right to health by restricting the Islamic Republic’s access to medicine.

He noted that “U.S. name shines directly or indirectly in any part of the world that human rights crimes take place”.

Iran has been a target of cruel U.S. sanctions over the past four decades. The sanctions, however, have intensified following Washington’s withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of ‎Action (JCPOA), between Tehran and the world powers in May 2018.

Although the United States claims that medicine and medical devices are not on the sanctions list, Iran cannot import these items in practice due to the restrictions on its banking sector.
