Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, banned the government from importing new coronavirus vaccines from the United States and Britain on Friday.
"Imports of US and British vaccines into the country are banned. I have told this to officials and I'm saying it publicly now," Khamenei said in a live televised speech, reports Reuters.
"If the Americans were able to produce a vaccine, they would not have such a coronavirus fiasco in their own country," he said.
