"Undoubtedly, the anti-Iran sanctions would harm the elderly and infants while the so-called advocates of human rights are observing and approving them by their silence," Qazizadeh-Hashemi told reporters, ISNA reported.

He also rejected the idea that the sanctions will not affect Iran's medical section, saying embargos against Iran's financial interactions and its oil trade would create problems for the country's health sector.
