Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdonnaser Hemmati said the CBI is making all-out efforts to provide funds for the purchase of medicines and medical equipment needed for the battle against the coronavirus outbreak amid the cruel US sanctions. 

“The Central Bank of Iran, in continuation of its active approach and efforts, is doing all in its power, with the cooperation and support of the respected Foreign Minister, to provide the foreign currency the country needs … to procure medicines and medical equipment…,” Hemmati wrote in an Instagram post on Friday.

Efforts for swiftly obtaining a loan from the International Monetary Fund, as Iran’s legitimate and absolute right, and unfreezing of the CBI’s foreign currency funds that have been blocked illegally under the US government’s pressure are both on positive tracks, he added.

Hemmati further stressed that under the current serious conditions, it is necessary that countries face no restrictions in supplying their needs to fight the pandemic.

Earlier this month, the CBI asked the IMF for $5 billion emergency funding to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
