Iran bans Covid-19 vaccines from UK, US

Iranian parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf said Sunday that the nuclear deal "was not sacred to us". The institute has released satellite imagery that purportedly shows Iran's fast-paced progress toward the construction of tunnels for a suspected new underground facility close to the Natanz nuclear enrichment site.

Iran has been the worst-hit country by the coronavirus in the Middle East.

Tuesday's accusations follow longstanding allegations that the Islamic Republic offered such support, including harbouring members of Osama bin Laden's family.

One source of evidence provided by Pompeo was a letter found by US Navy Seals during the raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan.

"I wouldn't like to receive a communication that because of the deadline of February 21 the presence of my inspectors in Iran is going to be reduced", Grossi said, likening any such a move to North Korea's past expulsion of IAEA inspectors. There is no need to fight with Iran.

"You don't have to be a former Central Intelligence Agency director to see the Iran-Al Qaeda axis as a massive force for evil all over the world", he said.

Even though food and medicine are exempt from these sanctions, global banks tend to decline transactions that involve Iran.

He said whatever is produced in the three countries is "untrustworthy", citing French HIV-contaminated blood supplies Iran received in the 1980s.

In a tweet, also on Friday, the Iranian leader posted, "The US openly says its interests require instability in this region".

"Unlike in Afghanistan, when al-Qaeda was hiding in the mountains, al-Qaeda today is operating under the hard shell of the Iranian regime's protection", he told the National Press Club.

Iran denied Masri was ever in Iran and claimed that no other al-Qaeda figures were present in the country.

"Indeed, everything changed in 2015, the same year that the Obama administration and the E-3, France, Germany, Britain, were in the middle of finalizing the JCPOA [Iranian nuclear deal]", Pompeo said.

Pompeo's comments come just a week before the Trump administration leaves office and appeared aimed at President-elect Joe Biden's stated desire to resume negotiations with Iran over the 2015 nuclear deal.

Ali Khamenei's speech against Western vaccines, particularly those developed in the United States, comes at a time when tension between Washington and Tehran has been rising, especially after the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq in January previous year.

A senior Iranian lawmaker warned on Saturday that Iran will expel the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors if the US anti-Iran sanctions are not lifted by February 21, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

"Foreign companies wanted to give us vaccines so they would be tested on the Iranian people".
