IRNA – Vice-President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari said on Tuesday that Iran has put on agenda the indigenous production of the US-sanctioned medicines.
Iran has high capacity for producing medicine inside the country, Sattari said at a ceremony held in northern Iranian province of Alborz on unveiling four anti-cancer and ant-diabetic drugs.
Within six months or a year, Iran relying on domestic capability can meet the country’s needs to medicines, Sattari said.
In related developments, Iran’s first Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri said on April 29 that Tehran expects the world community to break silence on the US sanctions on medicine imports to Iran. He stressed that the US action is against the Human Rights Law (HRL).
