DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif said on Monday that the Swiss humanitarian channel is not a sign of the United States’ goodwill, Iran’s Student News Agency(ISNA) reported.
The Swiss and U.S. governments on Thursday said a humanitarian channel to bring food and medicine to Iran has started trial operations to help supply Swiss goods to the struggling population without tripping over U.S. sanctions.
“This is a small step and we thank the Swiss government for its efforts … but this channel is not a sign of America’s goodwill at all,” ISNA quoted Zarif as saying.
