Ambassador: Iran has its own solutions to sanctions
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 8
By Elnur Baghishov – Trend:
Iran has its own solutions to sanctions, and can import and export the necessary products, Javad Jahangirzadeh, Iran's ambassador to Azerbaijan, said at a press conference, Trend reports.
According to the ambassador, the sanctions certainly create difficulties. "For example, there are sanctions on the import of cancer-treating medicines to Iran. Similarly, sanctions on other necessary products have been imposed."
However, Iran manages to acquire all products (e.g. meat) and meets the needs of its citizens, the ambassador noted.
"Iran has ways to import and export products and chooses not to disclose them so as to prevent the sanctions," the ambassador said, adding that during these times of sanctions, Iran maintains its ties with its partners.
The US declared its withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018 and subsequently imposed sanctions against Iran in November 2018.
