Shehbaz asks US to lift sanctions against Iran

Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif, expressing his concerns over the coronavirus pandemic situation in Iran, demanded immediate lifting of the US sanctions against Tehran.

In a series of tweets, Shehbaz said he had received a letter from the Iranian ambassador to Pakistan in which the serious obstacles Iran faced in combating COVID-19 were detailed.

Shehbaz said the US sanctions were adding to the miseries of the Iranian people. The world must realise that “unless the last person is cured, no one and I repeat NO ONE would be safe,” he added.

He said it is about time the world community put interests of humanity first and assisted Iran in mitigating the common COVID-19 challenge.
