There are now plenty of goods in stores, Iran Minister of Industry, Mine and Trade said.

“The goods supplies are sufficient for several years,” he said.
“Traffic restrictions do not pose a problem for supply of the goods,” added Rahmani.
He emphasized that the restrictions imposed on the movement of people do not pose a problem for the supply and distribution of public and consumer goods.
