Iran RCS has close, broad cooperation with Int’l Federation of Red Cross

Zanjan, May 26, IRNA - Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) enjoys close and broad cooperation with International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent (IFRC) Societies, senior official at the IRCS has said.

Iran Red Crescent as a member of IFRC has good interaction with the international body, director general of international communications at the IRCS Hassan Esfandiar told reporters in Zanjan, northwest of Tehran, on Tuesday.

As Esfandiar announced, IRCS is among the 20 international societies which play a leading role in making decisions about activities of the international body.

Totally, there are 192 Red Crescent societies across the world which work together as a network worldwide, Esfandiar underlined.

He went on to say that due to its foothold in the country, IRCS has had active presence in accidents that have occurred recently in different places in the world.

Also, Iranian Red Crescent Society is a member of emergency response at the IFRC since four years ago, the official added.

At the end of his remarks, the official criticized US for imposing unjust sanctions which have been an obstacle to receiving international help.

Under the former US President Donald Trump, the United States withdrew unilaterally from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed between Iran and the six world powers in May 2018 and imposed as the highest level of sanctions on Iran in November the same year.
