IRAN REJECTS TRUMP OFFER OF HELP ON CORONAVIRUS AS AYATOLLAH AIDE DIES: 'WE DON'T NEED THEM'

An Iranian official has dismissed President Donald Trump's offer of help in fighting the coronavirus, which on Monday claimed the life of a senior aide to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi said Monday that the U.S. is seeking to use the virus outbreak as part of its propaganda campaign against Iran to undermine national unity.

"Since the outbreak of the virus in Iran, we have been observing the U.S.-led anti-Iranian propaganda campaign and know about the measures the Americans have taken to reduce Iranian nation's morale," Mousavi told reporters, according to the Mehr News Agency.

Mousavi added that Tehran is "doubtful" about the U.S. offer of help and accused Washington of hiding its political motives behind the proposed cooperation. "We do not need them," Mousavi said.

Iran is one of the nations worst affected by the coronavirus outbreak so far, with 1,501 confirmed cases and the highest death toll outside of China at 66, according to the country's health ministry. Worldwide, more than 89,000 infections have been confirmed with more than 3,000 deaths.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is unfortunate, that the US government has, historically,and nearly pathologically, given the Iranian government so many reasons to mistrust anything the US might do, even if it is a gesture that at least, on the surface, looks humanitarian enough in its actual intent.

And to the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, as an American who does care about her country very intensely, and wishes peaceful self-determination for all countries of the earth, I would say the following; sir, this is perhaps a time to put down past, and prevailing, upsets with the US (and I do understand that right now, they are MANY), and let us encourage all of our brothers and sisters in our scientific communities to work together, responsibly, to find answers as to why this pandemic spread out of control so so rapidly; what its true nature is; and how to effectively,and intelligently, find a safe vaccine which will immunize all of humankind from this plague.

You have no idea who I am, or that I even exist; but I do read, and post from, presstv.com frequently, and there is one thing I do know about the Iranian people; they care, very much, for their families, and want to keep them well and healthy.

I am respectfully requesting that you might want to rethink this decision; and to the US government, if there is a little bit of relenting here on the Iranian side, please honor and respect that.
