Supreme Leader of Iran’s Regime Ali Khamenei Bans the Import of Coronavirus Vaccine To Iran

Supreme Leader of Iran’s Regime Ali Khamenei Bans the Import of Coronavirus Vaccine To Iran

January 8, 2021-While the number of Covid-19 victims in Iran is reaching the 200,000 mark under the most conservative assessments, regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei specifically expressed his opposition to importing vaccines. He left no doubt that he is the first individual responsible for the killing of thousands of deprived Iranians. “The entry of American and British Covid-19 vaccines into the country are banned. I have told this to our officials, and now I am saying it publicly,” he said on Friday. “If the Pfizer company can make the virus vaccine, why do they want to give it to us? They should use it themselves and not have such a high death rate… the same goes with the UK,” Khamenei added. “I also don’t trust[vaccines approved by the World Health Organization]. I don’t sometimes know they want to check their vaccines on other nations to see if they work or not… I don’t have a good feeling about France either… If [officials] want to procure the vaccine from other places, and it is a reliable country, that is no problem,” he continued.

Khamenei then began promoting “domestic vaccines” that are scheduled to be made by foundations under his control. According to the regime’s own experts if they are even usable, they will not be available before late June or July. “The vaccine being prepared for Covid-19 should not be questioned. This is our country’s pride,” Khamenei said. “On one sample it has reached the human testing phase and has been successful. This should not be doubted… It has been successful until now and God willing it will be successful in the future,” he added.

Ali Khamenei’s full text:
The [domestic] vaccine being prepared for Covid-19 should not be questioned. This is our country’s pride…
It has reached the human testing phase and has been successful. God willing they will make better ones, and they will be improved day by day. It has been successful until now and God willing it will be successful in the future.
The entry of American and British Covid-19 vaccines into the country is banned. I have told this to our officials, and now I am saying it publicly…
If they know how to make a vaccine, and if the Pfizer company can make the vaccine, why do they want to give it to us? They should use it themselves and not have such a high death rate… the same goes with the UK. They are not trustworthy or reliable. I don’t know, perhaps they wish to test a vaccine on other nations to see if it works or not. And of course, I do not trust the French either.
