Asia   No foreign cash donation has been made to the Iranian Red Crescent Society

The Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) says Iran has not been able to receive any foreign financial aid to assist flood-hit people in many parts of the country due to Washington's "inhuman" sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

"No foreign cash donation has been made to the Iranian Red Crescent Society yet and basically there are no financial channels available to do this," the IRCS said in a statement on Sunday.

"Some institutions and countries have expressed their readiness to donate and also declared certain sums of money; but as a result of the inhuman US sanctions, there is no way to send this cash assistance" to Iran, the statement added.

At least 70 people have been killed since March 19 in floods and extreme weather conditions in various Iranian provinces, from north to south, following the heaviest downpours in the country in at least a decade.
