Iran, which is battling US sanctions, is now starting to fear seizure of money from its Corona vaccine. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has expressed concern that the United States is preparing to confiscate all the money in his country’s vaccine. He claimed that the US administration said any money transferred from Iran to purchase the vaccine would have to go through US banks first.
Iranian President Fears Persecution
At a meeting of the Iranian Corona Virus Working Group, Rouhani said that we want to transfer money for the corona vaccine from countries where our money is present. However, he did not name the country from which Iran wants to transfer money for the vaccine. He also said that this country has no problem with this.
Iran can’t trust America
Rouhani claimed that the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control previously said it had no problem transferring the money for the vaccine. But now his attitude has changed. They say we must first transfer the money to buy the vaccine from a US bank. He targeted America and said who can trust you, who grabbed our money everywhere.

America has imposed numerous sanctions on Iran since 2018
The United States unilaterally broke the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran in 2018. Not only that, the Trump administration also imposed a number of sanctions on Iran after breaking the deal. As a result all of Iran’s assets, money and creditors were banned in America. Not only that, the United States had also forced the countries of its influence to seize the money from Iran.
