The ambassador recalled that Iran has been under sanctions for more than 40 years. “The collective West uses sanctions as a tool to destroy economies. And this is a flagrant violation of international norms,” Saeed Yari said.

The recent visit of your prime minister to Iran, and earlier the visit of the minister of foreign affairs confirm that relations between Tehran and Minsk are at the peak today,” said Saeed Yari.
