TEHRAN, 23 July 2020 (IRCS) After opening a financial channel for the Iranian Red Crescent, Francesco Rocca, President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRCS) wrote in his twitter account that IFRC and Iranian Red Crescent would be able to reach more vulnerable people in Iran.
The tweet read: Very good news! We @ifrc and @Iranian_RCS will be able to reach more vulnerable people in #Iran.
On July 21, IRCS president karim Hemmati said: “According to negotiations and correspondence conducted by the President of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) as well as the follow-up of our colleagues in the Iranian Red Crescent, the United States Department of the Treasury will not oppose the opening of a financial channel for the transfer of humanitarian aids to the Iranian Red Crescent, provided that the Americans are not one of the parties to the aid provided by individuals and legal entities.”
“According to the agreement, in the past few days, part of the aids, which were reserved for the Iranian Red Crescent and could not be transferred for several years, have been transferred to the country,” added Hemmati.
Previously, due to the US sanctions, the Iranian Red Crescent could not transfer humanitarian cash aids to the country.
