No objection to Europe sending medical supplies to Iran: Trump

The US has no objection to Europe sending medical supplies to Iran, which has been badly hit by the deadly coronavirus, President Donald Trump has said.

The Trump administration has imposed one of the toughest economic sanctions on Iran alleging that it is going ahead with its nuclear ambition and it is supporting terrorist organisations to destabilise the Middle east.

“They (Europeans) are sending medical goods to Iran. That doesn’t bother me”, Trump told reporters during a White House news conference.

Iran has become one of the world’s coronavirus epicenters, with more than 60,000 people infected and over 3,800 deaths. He was responding to a question on the call made by French President Emanuel Macron to his Iranian counterpart that Europe has started to ship the medical goods to Iran.
