Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Syed Ali Khamenei on Friday banned the government from importing new coronavirus vaccines from the United States and Britain.

“Imports of U.S. and British vaccines into the country are banned. I have told this to officials and I’m saying it publicly now,” Khamenei said.
