Middle-East’s Largest Anti-Cancer Drug Production Plant

(FNA)- Iran on Monday inaugurated a huge plant to produce anti-cancer medicine that is the largest in the Middle-East.
The plant was inaugurated in the presence of Iranian Health Minister Seyed Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi in Alborz province near Tehran.

While the US cruel sanctions prevent imports of medicine and medical equipment to Iran, the Iranian Actover Co. inaugurated 9 lines to produce anti-cancer drugs with nearly 100mln euros of investment.

The US Treasury Department reinstated all sanctions on Iran lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal on November 5.

According to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, the sweeping sanctions see 700 people blacklisted, including people who were granted relief under the 2015 deal, as well as over 300 new names

Iranian President  said earlier this month that the American officials had admitted their incapability to stop Iran’s crude sales, and the US sanctions would only leave negative impacts on imports of foodstuff, medicine and medical equipment.

The UN’s international court of justice, on October 03, reprimanded the US over its re-imposition of sanctions on Iran and ordered Washington to lift restrictive measures linked to humanitarian trade, food, medicine and civil aviation.

According to the verdict, which was read out by Judge Abdulqawi Ahmed Yusuf, Washington “shall remove by means of its choosing any impediments arising from the measures announced on May 8 to the free exportation to Iran of medicines and medical devices, food and agricultural commodities” as well as airplane parts.

A day later, Iranian foreign ministry announced that the ICJ’s rulings are binding, but it remains to be seen if the US will comply.

The Hague ruling was announced more than two months after Iran complained to the ICJ in July that US President Donald Trump’s re-imposition of unilateral sanctions against Tehran following Washington’s withdrawal from the 2015 landmark nuclear agreement was in violation of the Treaty of Amity, a 1955 treaty between Iran and the US.
