US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a Wednesday White House news conference that US sanctions had not prevented humanitarian assistance from reaching Iran, APA rpeorts quoting Sputnik.

"We've offered from the first day we knew that the virus had struck the people of Iran, we offered humanitarian assistance," Pompeo said at the briefing.

"I regret that they chose not to take that. I've heard people talking about sanctions, the world should know there are no sanctions that prevent humanitarian assistance, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, from going to Iran. We offered American assistance, we tried to help other countries get assistance in there as well. We've had some ability to do that," Pompeo said.
