US shouldn’t take advantage of crisis in China: Zarif

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif sympathized with Chinese people who are dealing with Coronavirus and thanked the Chinese government for its attempts to rein the outbreak.

In a tweet in Chinese, Zarif said, “Iranians say ‘The sons of Adam are brothers’, meaning they are like brother and sister”.

Mentioning a Chinese proverb, he said, “Iran stands beside China”.

“In a call with my good friend, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi, I expressed appreciation and gratitude for China's successful measures to fight the epidemic,” he added.

Zarif stressed, “China not only prevented the epidemic from deteriorating at home, but also prevented it from spreading internationally. We condemn US for taking advantage of its danger. China is obviously more responsible and successful than US in preventing and controlling H1N1 flu in 2009”.
