Khamenei opposed importing COVID-19 vaccines

Khamenei showed his true colors, by saying that: he opposed importing COVID-19 vaccines. he left no doubt that he was responsible for the death of thousands of deprived and oppressed compatriots left at the mercy of Coronavirus.

He said, “American and British vaccines are banned from being brought into the country. I told this to officials, and I will publicly announce it now. If Pfizer can make the vaccine, why do they want to give it to us?

Why don’t they use it themselves, not to have these many deaths… the same goes for Britain.” Under questioning the approved vaccines by WHO, he added, “I have no trust in them either. I do not know; sometimes, they want to test their vaccines on other nations to see if it works or not?

Of course, I am not optimistic about France either… We can get the vaccine from other places if it is safe. There’s nothing wrong with that.” Instead Khamenei turned to the “domestic vaccines” which are supposed to be produced by the foundations under his control.

Khamenei added, “The vaccine that was prepared for Coronavirus should not be rejected. This is the source of honor for the country… Well, if, in one case, it has been tested on humans and has been successful (no-one) should try to deny it. So far. It has been successful until now, and God willing will continue to be successful.”

Iran Needs a Vaccine

We are currently pursuing the purchase and import of one million doses of vaccine from three countries, China, India, and Russia,” he added, according to the Mehr news agency, January 8, 2021.

Officials and experts warning

According to regime experts, the vaccines would not be ready any sooner than July, if usable.

Khamenei’s callous remarks come at a time that according to Minoo Mohraz, a scientific member of the NCCT, talking to Khabar-Fori news site: “There is a possibility of a severe Coronavirus outbreak in the country with the beginning of the cold season in February and we are expecting the next peaks.”

Maryam Rajavi

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran’s (NCRI): Vaccines are people’s right. The death toll is nearing 200,000, but Khamenei says no vaccines could be imported from the US, UK, and France. By huge human casualties, he seeks to fend off popular uprisings. The Coronavirus and Khamenei are allied against the people of Iran.
