Iran slams hypocrisy of so-called “sympathizers” of Iranian people

Tehran, Iran | Xinhua | The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Thursday that those who claim to be advocates and sympathizers of Iranian people are those who have denied the country’s patients suffering from rare conditions access to the medicine they need to survive.

Nasser Kanaani made the remarks in a post on his Instagram page in reaction to certain states’ support for the protests that followed the death of a young girl in hospital a few days after she collapsed at a police station in Tehran.

“These days, those who claim to be advocates and sympathizers of Iran’s people and chant slogans of ‘life’ and ‘human rights’ are the ones that have, for years, been seeking to drive Iranians to desperation and force them into surrender to their excessive demands through ‘maximum pressure’ policy and paralysing sanctions,” he said.

Today’s so-called advocates and sympathizers of the Iranian people are the ones who have forged ahead with their years of hostility and Iranophobia to the extent that they have even deprived the country’s patients suffering from rare conditions, such as cancer and epidermolysis bullosa, of the medicine they need to survive, Kanaani added.

In similar remarks on Monday, Kanaani slammed the “interventionist” remarks of American and other Western politicians against Iran, official news agency IRNA reported.

“The enemies’ approach against Iran and the Iranian nation has always been accompanied by hypocrisy and double standards,” he added.

“Those who claim to be advocating the Iranian nation’s rights should abandon their false, threadbare slogans and put an end to decades of tyrannical and antihuman sanctions against the Iranian people,” the Iranian spokesman noted.
