Biden Urges Iran Sanctions Relief In View of COVID-19 Outbreak

Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden.

Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden has called for the United States to ease sanctions on Iran to reduce suffering as the Islamic republic reels from the coronavirus pandemic. Biden said the United States should set up a dedicated channel for banks and other companies to operate in Iran and issue licenses for the sale of pharmaceuticals and medical devices.

The former vice president also called for guarantees to aid groups that they will not be penalised for operating in Iran - and said Tehran should reciprocate by freeing detained Americans.
