‘Weaponizing food and medicine is crime against humanity’, Iran tells U.S. 

November 17, 2018

TEHRAN - An Iranian diplomat to the United Nations on Thursday severely criticized the United States for limiting Iran’s access to food and medicine through sanctions, saying such an action constitute an example of “crime against humanity”.

“Weaponizing food and medicine against civilians has no other designation but crime against humanity,” Eshaq Al Habib told the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly.

He added, “The U.S. secretary of state in an interview shamelessly threatens all Iranians to mass starvation.”
